This page is a list of new precautions and systems that we are considering implementing for our eventual reopening.


  • In the past admission was $20.00 per visitor for groups of up to 6 guests and payment was due at the time and point of the actual (or fictional?) departure. However, the Covid 19 crisis has caused us to re-think our admission policies.

  • The new price of each tour package will be $100.00 for groups of 2 to 5 individuals. 

  • In the past our Curator of Audiences would pair couples and small groups of visitors together to form groups of up to 6. This will no longer be the case. Going forward one lead guest will arrange for every individual that joins the tour. This way all guests will be accustomed to one-another prior to arrival.

  • All admission payments will be made touchless and conducted online prior to arrival. Guests will receive pre-visit information about their tour as well as additional safety practices as part of the reservation process. 

  • Generally groups will be a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 5 guests - but may be as many as 6 if 1 or 2 members of the party are extremely well behaved children between the ages of 10 and 13.

  • Our guides have always worn a special mask that hides their faces and mouths, but an additional filtration system will be added to this system.

  • A special hand-made mask will also be provided to every guest no cost. Guests will be required to wear these masks while inside Patamechanics Hall.

  • Ample hand sanitizer will be available at all times.

  • Disposable protective ear pads will be included for the audio portion of the tour.

  • Thorough wipe down and sterilization of touchable surfaces will take place before every tour.

  • Patamechanics Hall will have a new, open-air ventilation system.
