Please join us before the tour at 1 pm for light refreshments in Arnold Board Room. The tour starts at 1:30 pm and ends by 3 pm with opportunity for further conversation and refreshments afterward. To help with wayfinding, visitors will be greeted by docents at our main entrance, on the corner of First Ave. and Union St. This is an accessible entrance, which means that visitors taking ACCESS transportation or taxi can expect a drop off area and a ramp. If you are driving, this entrance is also where the parking garage elevator leads to.
