Tours and Speaker Requests

Western History and Genealogy Tours and Class Visits
We welcome classes that need help with research projects, and classes for general tours, as well as art tours. The Western History and Genealogy Department houses a large collection of materials for family history research and has a nationally recognized collection on the history of the American West, with excellent primary and secondary source materials for researchers of all ages. Requests must be received at least two weeks in advance. The department conducts tours and class visits on Tuesdays or Thursdays, and our tour schedule fills up quickly.

Blair-Caldwell Research Library Group Visits, Tours and Speaker Requests
The Blair-Caldwell African American Research Library is unable to meet the needs and expectations of the community and staff in its current condition for in-library museum tours and programs. Our branch is closed to the general public until further notice due to ongoing renovation. Renovations are expected to be completed tentatively mid-year 2023. Community speaker requests are limited to a first come, first served basis.

The staff at the Blair-Caldwell African American Research Library look forward to providing access to our museum, to programming, and resources in person in the very near future. We appreciate your patience!
