Guided Tours

Our Guided Tours have been temporarily suspended for the safety of our visitors, volunteer guides, and staff. HOWEVER, we invite the public, and small groups of 10 or fewer, to visit the building and take a self-guided tour by booking an advance FREE ticketed reservation by CLICKING HERE. Days and times are restricted to Wed-Fri, 11am, 1pm, 3pm and Sun 12pm and 2pm.

Reservations must be booked Mon-Fri, 9am-4pm on the website, or by calling 651-292-3063. We regret we cannot accommodate same-day appointments. Guests must adhere to State and City mandates requiring all visitors to public buildings to wear a face mask (unless exempted by medical necessity, in which case another form of covering should be employed by the guest).

Landmark Center offers public and private tours that range from a broad presentation of the building’s history and its beautifully restored courtrooms and Cortile, to tours tailored to the specific needs of the groups or individuals taking the tours.
