For Groups

Whether it's a special tour of our campus or a visit from a historical character at your meeting, the Burlington County Historical Society has many ways to bring history to life for your group.

On Site Tours

Group tours are a great way to explore our shared history. Visitors will experience a guided tour of our three historic houses and museum galleries. This can be paired with a walking tour of historic downtown Burlington.  We also offer special themed tours such as Burlington and Benjamin Franklin, The Underground Railroad and Abolition in Burlington, Burlington during the Civil War and The Industrial Side of Burlington. We can accommodate groups up to 100. Please call (609) 386-4773 to talk to a tour coordinator to create a package that is just right for your group!
