Out of caution, all planned group tours or school groups, including tours at the Missouri state Capitol, are suspended in order to avoid large congregations of people in confined areas. In addition, all indoor guided tours, including tours of historic buildings and caves, are suspended. Visitor centers, museums and nature centers remain closed until further notice.

Each April and May, the historic site conducts special interactive school programs for elementary students. The programs are designed to give children a taste of 19th century life and broaden their sense of Missouri history. Reservations for the school programs are taken in early February. Contact the site office at 660-837-3330 for more information or to be placed on the school program mailing list.
