Things to note:

  • No set program duration. Our programming prior to 2020 would normally run for approximately three hours; with our new system, your visit this year can be as short or as long as you like. While bookings and a time of arrival are still required, you can arrange your visit as you wish, and intersperse Huble-led activities with your own games, exploration, and breaks.

  • Self-guided tour. If you'd prefer that your group visit the buildings and structures at their own pace, you are able to do so! Informational signage is posted throughout our exhibits, or self-guided tour brochures may be requested. There is no fee for this option.

  • Self-guided games guide. You can request our self-guided games guide if you would prefer to have a member of your party run games instead of our staff. There is no fee for this option.

  • Occupancy limits in the General Store. Groups are always welcome to visit the General Store during their visit. For school and summer care groups, access to the Store is staggered, with groups limited to five children. If you prefer, we also offer customized goody bags that you can take home at the end of your trip.

  • No sheep. Unfortunately, our sheep program is on hold for the 2023 season.
