Group tours can be scheduled for 10 or more scouts and their parents during the summer months or school vacations. Please make reservations at least three weeks in advance and designate the ages of the scouts who will participate in the tour. A leader can be admitted at no charge.
A one hour tour includes viewing a 15-minute film on the Southeastern Indians. Scouts will go into the Hall of the Ancients and see how Native Americans lived long ago. They will see artifacts and the guide will discuss archaeology. They also visit the Longhouse and their guide will talk about the deer skin trading in Georgia.
A 90 minute tour will include the above program and scouts may use interactive computers to learn about primitive skills and/or play Native American games weather permitting. The group can also visit the Appalachian Settlement including going into a historic log cabin and learning how sorghum syrup was made.
A variety of programs are offered to meet the needs of a group and their merit badge requirements. Please contact Martha Hout at 770-720-9222 or Julie Shrout at 770-720-5969 for information concerning fees and to make reservations.
