Visits are limited to 12 people. Admission is $10 per person and free for museum members. Anyone interested in joining a tour is encouraged to make a reservation by calling 508-738-8278 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

The walking tours are part of the ‘Worcester’s Revolution’ project, created in partnership with digital historian and associate professor at Worcester Polytechnic Institute Joseph Cullon and his students with Digital Worcester. The project is supported in part by a grant from the Worcester Arts Council.
