We look forward to hosting your class or group at Evansville Wartime Museum. Usually tours run one hour.
Schools and Teachers We welcome you, your class and your school. We ask that you provide one chaperone per every six 4th through 8th grade students and one chaperone per every 10 high school students. We ask that chaperones remain with the group at all times.
Accessibility All four of our galleries are on the first floor and fully accessible. Our entry is at ground-level with no stairs. Our two restrooms are on the first floor with accessible stalls. We have available one wheelchair and one walker.
Indoor Climate Three of our galleries are air-conditioned during warm weather months. Our Main Hall, formerly an aircraft hangar, is ventilated but we encourage guests to keep their coats during colder weather.
Parking and Accommodations As school and group tours take place Tuesday through Friday when the Museum is closed, your group receives the equal of a private tour. Your docent-led tour includes our four galleries as well as any particular subject matter we can provide. Please let us know any special requests or curriculum requirements. Parking There is plenty of on-site parking for cars, vans and buses. A ramp at the curb helps with wheelchairs or other assistive devices. Food Service We have no food service on premise, nor do we encourage food or beverage in the Museum galleries.
Tour Hours Tour hours on Tuesday through Friday are 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Please let us know if your class or group needs different timing and we will try to plan accordingly.
