ViSIT US

 

We are thrilled that you are interested in Vermilionville for a visit with your class this year. We strive to offer an educational and entertaining outing for the students that visit us. We refer to these as cultural excursions. Your group has the choice of either a guided or self-guided tour. If you choose the guided tour option, the tour guide fee is $35 per guide, and your tour guide will lead the group through the village. If you choose the self-guided tour option you will be provided with village talking points prior to your visit and brochures with a map to help you navigate your way through the village upon arrival. Please note, if you wish to use tour guides they must be scheduled in advance and deposits are required. We are available anytime if you would like (or need) to make adjustments to your schedule or planned enhancements. These include :

Each group is limited to 25 warm bodies per group (including adults and students). This is because of fire marshal codes and to insure the protection of our artifacts. 

If you are interested in planning a trip to see our historic village, please fill out the form below and our Tour Coordinator will contact you to customize your experience with us based on your budget and time frame. Please keep in mind that we may not be able to book your group on your preferred date if other schools are already on our calendar. We will work with you to find another date that is available.
