School Tours (Self-Guided)

Teachers have the option to guide their own classes in select exhibitions in place of guided school tours. Teachers interested in a self-guided tour may request a free planning pass when registering for a tour. This offer applies only to teachers scheduling self-guided tours.

All self-guided groups must register at least three weeks in advance to assure availability and receive our group rate of $7 per student.

2017-2018 school tour bookings will open July 20, 2017.

Additional Information

Title I schools receive free tours in January and February 2017. Due to high demand and limited availability, there is a $50 deposit due three weeks prior to your visit. This payment will only be processed if you cancel your tour.

Full payment is required 3 weeks prior to your visit to guarantee your reservation for all tours. If booking less than 3 weeks in advance, full payment is due immediately.

Confirmation of day and time and Arrival Information will be sent via email. Please bring your confirmation with you on the day of your tour to ensure the group rate.

Should you choose to cancel your tour, 50% of the cost of your tour is non-refundable. If schools are closed due to weather, your tour will be rescheduled, or you will receive a full refund. 

There is a $25 administrative fee should you need to reschedule your tour. You must notify the Atlanta History Center at least 3 days in advance. With advance notice your payment can be applied to a new tour date, plus the administrative fee.

Please note that some areas of the Atlanta History Center are under construction. Be sure to refer to your Arrival Information for up to date details on drop off and parking.
