Guided tours may be scheduled for scout groups on a Saturday, during the summer months or on school vacations. Reservations must be made at least three weeks in advance. Designate the number of scouts that will be participating in the tour and their ages. A leader and assistant leader will be admitted at no charge. Other adults attending will pay the regular admission fee. The fee for a group of 10 to 15 scouts is $80 plus 6% tax payable in advance. The fee for 16 to 30 scouts is $150 plus tax. 

A 90 minute 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. Time permitting, scouts may also play Native American games
