Visitor experience

The health and safety of our guests, staff, and community is our highest priority. With this in mind, Jeffers Petroglyphs has made some important updates to promote social distancing during your visit.

Advance tickets

Please buy your tickets in advance online or through the box office at 651-259-3015. Walk-up tickets are also available


Guided tours of the petroglyphs are limited to 10 people. Free printed visitor guides are available in a holder outside of the building.

Self-guided trails

In addition to the short and long prairie trails, Jeffers Petroglyphs now offers a south prairie trail, which is approximately 1.25 miles long. It follows a mowed grassy path that starts at the Three Sisters garden. This trail features rare plants and a prairie restoration project that utilized seeds from remnant prairie grasses harvested within the 20 mile region.

Visitor center

The visitor center is only open for restroom use and onsite ticket purchases. The museum store, exhibits, and theater are temporarily closed. The water fountain is not available. PLEASE bring your own water.

Signage and ground markings

Please follow the signs and ground markings that have been installed throughout the grounds to ensure safe social distancing.

Health and safety

We encourage you to wear a face covering when you visit. Please maintain a 6-foot distance from other visitors and staff. If you are feeling sick, have flu-like symptoms, or have been in contact with someone who has recently had COVID-19, please visit us another time.
