The Hayes Presidential Library and Museums welcomes 3,000 students every year. Come experience history with us!


Please plan on spending at least 2 hours at the site if you are touring both the Home and the Museum –
guided tours are provided at both locations. The Hayes Presidential Library can accommodate groups of up to 120 students each day. Groups are welcome to walk around the grounds and visit the President's tomb after their tours at their own pace. The museum and home are both wheel chair accessible. Space for lunch inside the museum is available upon request, and groups are welcome to eat on the grounds or at Birchard Park (about 2 blocks away) for a picnic experience.

There is a Museum Store on site in the museum building. 20 minutes of extra time should be planned for shopping (more for large group check outs). Store visits must be included with reservation

Upon arrival students should be split up into groups of 12-15 (if applicable), and be prepared to jump right into their touring sessions. Sessions for smaller groups will begin with a tour of the Hayes Home, and tours of 60+ should plan to split between the Museum and the Home, then switch after their tours.

Interested in a different kind of tour or want to include a curriculum appropriate activity? Contact us for more information.
