Group and Walking

Tour Information

We Are SMALL

Due the small size of our historic house, groups larger than 10 people will be divided into smaller groups. Because your tour may involve some walking outdoors, if there is anyone in your group who is not ambulatory or is not able to walk 1/2 mile, please notify the museum as soon as possible, for alternative tour arrangements.

 

Weather

Walking tours are conducted in most weather conditions except thunderstorms, if the temperature is below freezing, or above 95 degrees. Please remind participants to dress appropriately for the weather. 

 

Parking

Free parking is available at the Greenbelt Community Center, 15 Crescent  Road, Greenbelt, MD 20772. Buses may park behind the Greenbelt Public Library.
