History Center Group Tour Policy   


1.   Group tours are available during our regular season from the 2nd Tuesday in June until the last Saturday in September. Because we rely on a staff of all-volunteer docents, tours outside those times will be subject to the availability of staff. We will do everything we can to accommodate your planned date(s).


2.   All tours must be made at least four weeks in advance of the tour; however, some exceptions can be made depending on availability of staffing.


3.  Groups must have a minimum of 12 persons to qualify for our group tour discounted rates. Groups of less than 12 persons are subject to our normal admission fees at the time of the tour.


4.  Payment is required at the time of the visit or before. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, institutional checks and cash. Personal checks are not accepted unless we receive those 14 days before the scheduled tour.


5.  For every ten (10) students (less than 18 years of age) there must be at least one chaperone with the group at all times.  Chaperones must be at least 18 years of age.  One chaperone will be admitted free for every ten paying students.


6.  Large tour groups will be split into smaller groups to improve visitor experience—typically 25 or fewer people.


7. Strollers are not permitted in the Sherriff’s Residence, Jail or Log Cabin.


8.  Food and drink are not permitted in any of the History Center buildings.


9.  Smoking is not permitted anywhere on the grounds.


10. Backpacks, tote bags, umbrellas or other bulky items must remain on tour buses or in vehicles as we do not have a secure place to store them and they cannot be taken into the History Center buildings.


11.  Flash photography is not permitted.


12.  All cell phones are to be silenced when inside the History Center.


If you have any questions regarding our group tours, please call us for more information.
We will be more than happy to assist you in planning your tour of the History Center of Cheboygan County.
