Behind the Scenes Collections Tours

Thursday, October 24, 2019, 6:00pm - 7:30pm

Explore the world without ever leaving Dayton, as you go behind the scenes at the Museum! Join us as we head into the vault for guided, themed tours throughout the year. From a spooky experience just in time for Halloween to a dive into the travels of famous – and not-so-famous! – Daytonians, each tour will showcase highlights from the Society’s 1.8 million item Collection and give guests a unique peek into histories of various cultures around the world.

Tickets: $50 per person for each program. All proceeds benefit conservation of the objects in our care.
