The Lizzadro Museum of Lapidary Art offers tour programs to school groups. Teachers must arrange a tour date and time by calling the Museum at 630.833.1616 during Museum hours.
Admission is $2.00 per person for organized school groups. Groups visiting the Museum are limited to 90 students maximum and 10 students minimum.
Tours are offered to school groups Tuesday through Friday. The first tour starts at 10:00 a.m. Total visiting time for school groups is approximately one and a half hours not to exceed two hours.
Your tour begins in the Museum’s lower level exhibit hall “The Rock & Mineral Experience” with an introduction by a tour guide. The students then watch a 15 minute video introducing them to the various exhibits in the Museum. After the video the group is given directions by the tour guide about Museum rules, the scavenger hunt quiz, and the Gift Shop. Download the Scavenger Hunt Quiz Here.
The scavenger hunt quiz pertains to both levels of the Museum. The group splits in half to take the quiz (2 to 3 students per quiz). The students on both levels of the Museum answer questions by finding the exhibit. The groups then switch levels. The lower level group is allowed to go through the Gift Shop in small groups accompanied by an adult.
Picnic lunches are allowed outside in Wilder Park. To reserve a picnic area call the Elmhurst Park District at 630.993.8901.
PARKING: School buses are not allowed to enter Wilder Park. Buses must let off groups and park on the west side of Cottage Hill next to the Museum. A bus parking map will be sent to school groups coming by bus.
