Groups must schedule tours at least two weeks ahead.
We offer docent-guided tours and special focused programs and activities for schools, groups, clubs, and organizations with at least two weeks notice. Tours are from 1 1/2 to 2 hours depending on the focus.
The Group reservation fee is $35 for up to 25 people, $50 for 26-60 people. We cannot accommodate groups larger than 60. The reservation fee will secure the date of your tour. An additional fee of $3 per person is required upon arrival at MBG on the scheduled tour date.
There will be a $35 non-refundable (unless MBG cancels the tour) reservation fee charged for all tours, plus a charge of $3 per participant (excluding teachers and chaperones) payable the day of the tour. The reservation fee will be due in advance of the tour as a deposit at the time of reservation. Payment may be sent to MBG, 5151 Museum Dr., Mobile, AL 36608. A tour is not considered to be scheduled until the deposit is received. A confirmation will be sent to the group leader when the fee has been received.
The Reservation confirmation will include an agreed upon anticipated time of arrival. Docent tour guides will wait 30 minutes past the anticipated time, but no longer unless contacted by the group leader. The confirmation will include a number to call if the tour is delayed or has an emergency in route.
Sizes: Tours can accommodate a maximum of 60 individuals. During the tour, large groups will be divided into smaller groups of approximately 15-18 individuals to maximize group/leader interactions. Larger groups should inquire about possible special arrangements such as scheduling visits over multiple days and catered lunches.
Chaperones: For children or students, we request a minimum of adult chaperones as follows:
pre-K thru 3rd -1 per 5
4th thru 6th– 1 per 8
7th thru 12th -1 per 10.
