Behind The Scenes Tours
If you are a member, you can purchase tickets early by logging through the member log-in. Your username and password is your Membership ID number. Public offering will begin September 23.
Each season, the Detroit Historical Society hosts special Behind the Scenes tours of historic locations and other venues throughout metro Detroit. Past tours have included the Masonic Temple, Guardian Building, Packard Proving Grounds, Historic Fort Wayne, and the Lawrence P. Fisher Mansion.
We invite you to join us as we go Behind the Scenes at some of metro Detroit’s most unique locations. Listen as our expert guides show you these places in ways you’ve never experienced before!
These weekly tours normally take place on Saturdays, but occasionally special tours take place on weekdays. On average, tours last from 90 minutes to two hours.
Because reservations are required and many tours sell out quickly, we recommend that you make your plans for these tours well in advance. Visit the event calendar to learn about upcoming Behind the Scenes tours!
