Visitor Experience

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

Keeping us all safe

We've put safety measures in place to protect the health of our visitors, staff, and volunteers based on guidance from the CDC and local governments:

  • Visitors are required to wear masks indoors and encouraged to wear one outdoors. Masks must cover both mouth and nose.
  • 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.


Tickets are timed-entry. Walk-up tickets are available, though visitors are encouraged to buy in advance to ensure a spot in their preferred tour time.


Tours of the Sibley Historic Site are offered on the hour, with the last tour leaving at 4:00 pm. Tours are limited in size to accommodate social distancing.

Dupuis House

The Dupuis House is open for restroom use and on-site ticket and museum store purchases. The drinking fountain is temporarily closed, so visitors are encouraged to bring their own water.
