Can I bring kids?

Mural tours are a fun way to spend time together as a family.  Tours do involve walking, standing and listening.  We ask that you be mindful of other guests and gauge the appropriateness of this activity for your child/children.  Children under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.  Throughout the tour, there are many open spaces that allow for kids to move.     

Is the tour wheelchair/stroller accessible?

For the pedestrian, downtown Seward presents a combination of sidewalks and streetscapes with moderate grades.  We encourage participants to gauge their own abilities as to whether or not these issues will be significant.  

Are gratuities accepted?

Gratuities are always appreciated should you enjoy your experience!
