Seating is provided for two adults or the equivalent per seat. Persons of size requiring additional space must purchase additional tickets as required at the time of initial ticket purchase.

By virtue of the historic equipment utilized, no specific seats/ locations can be reserved, and community-style seating is practiced.

Incomplete/ late groups and/ or late group members will be seated at the museum’s discretion.
