Our galleries are open to everyone Monday through Friday from 8AM to 5PM and Saturday from 1PM to 5PM. We welcome groups of all ages for tours. Due to limited staff availability we ask that you have at least five people in your tour and contact us at least two weeks in advance to schedule a visit. We do not offer regular tours on Saturdays. Please fill out a tour request form or call 706-583-0213 to schedule a time to visit and staff will be in touch within two business days of your request.
