All tours are by appointment, as the JHSH is also a private residence, and your indulgence is appreciated in making advance reservations. Tours must be booked by phone, not by email, please call 651-225-1505. Dr. Hawkins needs to hear your voice. The JHSH tour cost is $9 per person, less than in many places,  you will be guided by an accomplished lifetime public speaking professional, your time will be well-invested. Evening tours, as well as more customary hours, are equally possible.


At the end of our usual tour relax on the museum furniture and enjoy a glass of sparkling wine. Take home the JHSH logo glass, the cost is $20 per person.


 Groups larger than 20 will require some innovation, and some reorganization and compromising of the narrative text, easily done to accommodate  your group.

The JHSH has a small single parking space in the alley available on request. Parking across the street from the museum on St Albans St is not allowed. Grand Ave and Lincoln Ave are good options for parking.
