THE SAFETY AND WELL-BEING OF OUR VISITORS AND STAFF IS THE ASA PACKER MANSION MUSEUM'S HIGHEST PRIORITY.

THE COST FOR THE WALK-THRU TOURS, WILL BE $6.00 PER PERSON (ALL AGES). TICKETS ARE SOLD ON A FIRST COME/FIRST SERVE BASIS.
PER THE RECENT CDC GUIDELINES, FULLY VACCINATED PERSONS ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR MASKS AT ALL MUSEUMS WHERE UNVACCINATED PEOPLE ARE AROUND. IT IS FOR THAT REASON THAT NO ONE WILL BE ALLOWED INSIDE THE MUSEUM WITHOUT MASKS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE FROM THE CDC. THANK YOU!
