How do I register my class group for a tour?

Please fill out the TLC School Gallery Tours Request Form.


May we eat on site? Do you have a cafeteria facility?

Unfortunately, The CCCADI Firehouse does not have a designed eating facility on site. However, we can provide an appropriate space for bag lunches in our first floor multi-purpose gallery following the end of each guided tour program.  We can store your bag lunches in our galley kitchen while your class is in the galleries.


My class includes children with special needs. Can they be accommodated?

Yes. Our museum educators are able to communicate with children of varying abilities. Please make sure to indicate on the registration form the classification of special needs, and how many students are included in your visiting group. Additionally, please let us know what accommodations we can provide in order to assist you.
