Special group access will be offered on Mondays (from 10am-5pm) between April 13-May 22, 2024, to view Away from Home, American Indian Boarding School Stories.


Guided and self-guided experiences are available for groups at the Western Heritage Center, Tuesday through Friday, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. or by appointment. Most programs take about one hour. Reservations must be made at least one week ahead for guided experiences, and may include a nominal fee. We appreciate knowing when self-guided groups are coming so we don’t schedule another tour at the same time.

To schedule your program and inquire about fees, please contact Lauren Hunley at 256-6809 or Please notify us if you need any special considerations. For student groups, we ask that one adult chaperone accompany every ten students. Classes will be divided into manageable sizes. Virtual visits can be arranged upon request.
