Multi Age and Homeschool Tours
Guided tours are offered to groups year-round. An educator in period clothing will teach your students about the history of Fort Nisqually as part of a global fur trade business. Students will visit our historic buildings where the focus is on daily life of Fort Nisqually's 19th century employees and their families.
Groups of 15 - 90 students can be accommodated on these tours. Larger groups should reserve two adjacent tour times. (TIP: In nice weather, you may choose to have one group picnic at the neighboring rentable picnic shelter while the other group takes a tour of the fort).
