Group Tours

Group tours and programs may be structured around a special theme while visiting the galleries. For example, tours may lead groups through an extraordinary collection of decorative arts, revealing the craftsmanship that makes Chester County pieces unique. Or, a tour may introduce the people of the past and may examine the day-to-day struggles, rarely told in the history books that are at the heart of America's greatness. The American Revolution, the Underground Railroad, the fight for women's rights all had a significant role in Chester County's story.

Group programs can last for an hour or longer, depending on the group’s wishes. Programs may include a lecture first followed by a tour. See the Speaker’s Bureau for a pre-set list of topics, or contact us to see if we can accommodate your needs. 

With prior notice, we also can arrange catered or boxed lunches on-site, or lunch at local restaurants and inns, or morning or afternoon refreshments. 

The Historical Society also offers walking tours for groups through the picturesque borough of West Chester.

To arrange a group visit, contact Ellen Endslow, Director of Collections/Curator at eendslow@chestercohistorical.org or call 610-692-4800 x257.
