Guided Tours

Guided tours provide visitors with a customized, interactive, and engaging museum experience. Museum staff and trained docents conduct tours for people of all ages. Visitors can come time after time and always learn and see something new.

How and When to Schedule Tours

The Daum Museum is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays and 1-5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. The Daum is closed on Mondays and on days when SFCC is closed for holidays or inclement weather. Individual and group tours can be scheduled during regular operating hours or after hours by special arrangement. Check the museum’s event calendar for more details.
