Since 1972, the Historic Houses of Worship Tour Series has acquainted metro Detroiters with the contributions religious institutions have made in the development of our community. Each tour typically features five area churches and highlights the importance of maintaining and preserving these historic sites as living history.

All tours depart from and return to the Detroit Historical Museum and run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. unless otherwise noted. Tours include motorcoach transportation with docent commentary, historical presentations at each tour stop, lunch, and donations back to each location. Tour prices are $40 for Detroit Historical Society members and $50 for guests.

Please see the event calendar for upcoming Historic Houses of Worship tours. Due to the popularity of these tours, it is recommended that you make reservations well in advance. No group or individual reservations will be held without payment in full. Tour information is released quarterly and posted on this page on the 1st of December, March, June and September for each upcoming season.

This season's tour tickets go on sale to members on Tuesday, December 15, 2015 at 10:00 a.m., and any remaining tickets will be available to the public on December 29, 2015.

If you prefer to register online, you must be logged in as a member to access discounted tickets. To log in, please visit the website and click on the "Member Login" tab, which is located across the top of the screen. Use your Society member ID number as both your Username and Password.
