Group Tours

Group Tours are a fun, educational way to enjoy our museum. They include a live presentation, the playing of instruments, and some remarkable stories regarding the unusual and special musical collection we care for.

How many people can come on a group tour?

We cater for a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 50 people for a tour. If your group has less than 10 people, please contact us to arrange a visit on one of our open days – entry by koha.

How much does it cost?

The cost per person is $15 (including GST), with a minimum of 10 persons and a maximum of 50 persons for a tour. If your group has fewer than 10 you may still request a guided tour and pay for 10 people.

We require a deposit of 25% of the total tour cost, with a minimum deposit of $50. The balance of the tour cost is due seven days before the tour date via a single payment to our bank account.

To minimise overheads, we cannot take cash or card payments on the day. The museum treasurer will invoice the tour organiser and provide receipts for the deposit and payment of the final balance.

Cancellation Policy

We appreciate that sometimes the number of people on a tour may change, or it may be necessary to cancel or reschedule a tour. Please let us know as early as possible of any changes of plan for your tour.

We reserve the right to keep your deposit to cover our administration costs if a tour is cancelled with less than seven days’ notice.
