  • Guided Tours

    Guided tours are arranged with Paula Zamiatowski, Domes Interpretive Educator and are available at the Mitchell Park Domes Education Center: Wednesday-Friday, 9:30am, 11:00am, and 2:00pm, throughout the year.

    Saturdays are only available if you prepay the minimum of 20 adults and you register through the Domes Ed Center website 2 months ahead of time to secure an opening on the Domes Event Calendar.

    Our time together totals 45 - 60 minutes. Allow 2 hours from the time you enter the facility to the time you leave.

    My time with your group can be divided into mini-introductions to each topic that really sets the tone nicely for each dome experience. This is the most popular method that adults enjoy and it allows more flexibility for all the different types of people (the browsers to the scholars) in your group.

    Tour topics range from the history of the Domes to horticulture to show changes to plant maintenance. I look forward to meeting your group.
