you an Activity Director, business owner, Scout Leader or part of any
group of individuals looking for something 'different' to do close to
home? We offer tours of our buildings year-round. Simply call ahead so
that we can schedule a docent or two to guide your through the buildings
and tell you all about Mechanicsburg's rich history. Two weeks or
more advance notice is appreciated.
Tours can last anywhere from forty-five minutes long (very brief,
little history) to two hours or so (full descriptions and
question-answer sessions). Of course, we recommend the full tour. When
making reservations, we can provide you with a list of restaurants and
motels in the area.
Groups larger than 20 may need to be split into smaller groups dues to
limited space inside the buildings, but can usually be accommodated at
the same time. There is no charge for a tour, but a small donation to
the museum would be greatly appreciated. Please contact the Museum for
additional information at (717) 697-6088, or e-mail us at
email@example.com. If leaving a message or sending
an e-mail, please include your name, name of your organization,
telephone number, size and age range of your group, and proposed date
for a tour.
