The Lizzadro Museum of Lapidary Art offers tour programs to scout groups’ grades 2 thru 8. Scout leaders must arrange a tour date and time by calling the Museum at 630.833.1616 during Museum hours or email: for tour availability. Tours can be arranged for groups with special interests or needs.

General Tour Admission is $2.00 per person for organized scout groups. Tours are offered Tuesday through Saturday. The first tour starts at 10:00 a.m. The last tour is at 3:30 p.m. Total visiting time is approximately one and a half hours not to exceed two hours.

Tours begin in the Museum’s lower level exhibit hall “The Rock & Mineral Experience” with an introduction by a tour guide. The scouts then watch a 15 minute DVD introducing them to the various exhibits in the Museum. After the DVD the group is given directions by the tour guide about Museum rules, the scavenger hunt quiz, and the Gift Shop as needed.

The scavenger hunt quiz (recommended for grades 3 to 5) pertains to both levels of the Museum. Download the Scavenger Hunt Quiz Here. The group splits in half to take the quiz (2 scouts per quiz). The scouts 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.
