Behind The Scenes Tours

Each season, the Detroit Historical Society hosts special Behind the Scenes tours of historic locations and other venues throughout metro Detroit. Let our expert guides show you these places in ways you’ve never experienced before!

These weekly tours normally take place on Saturdays, but some do take place on weekdays. On average, tours last from 90 minutes to two hours. Most tours require you to meet at the tour location.

Because reservations are required and many tours are only able to accomdate a very limited number of guests, we recommend that you make your plans well in advance - and become a member to get the earlest access to tickets. Tour information is released quarterly and posted on the 1st of December, March, June and September for each upcoming season. Tickets will become available to members about two weeks later (please see postings for exact on-sale dates).

You must log in as a member to purchase discounted/early tickets. Forgot your password? You may reset it here.

If you are having trouble logging in or would like information on becoming a member, contact our Membership Department at 313.833.0158.
