'Hard Hat' Tours give members an inside look

Tours are led by Museum Director Christopher Leitch, who details the construction and architectural integrity of Corinthian Hall, which was originally the home of the R.A. Long family. Learn more about this architectural gem.
The restoration process is already yielding beautiful rewards — the exquisite stained glass window at the top of the grand staircase has been carefully restored and the nearby carriage house boasts grand new mahogany doors. Other doors and windows throughout Corinthian Hall and the carriage house have been replaced, and more are slated to be complete later this year.
Hard Hat Tours will be held on the third Sunday of each month during 2010. Due to insurance regulations, you must be at least 18 years old to take the tour. Because many areas are under construction, closed-toe shoes are required. (Children are welcome in the Visitor Center and Storytarium when accompanied by an adult.) Sign up for the tour now >>
Tours are free of charge to members of the Friends organization. If you’d like to join a tour, but you’re not yet a member, you can support the Museum and be the first to know about exclusive events by joining. Learn more about membership and purchase your membership online.
