Adult Group Tour
Length of visit: Approximately 1-2 hours
Group Size: 10-30
What to Expect
Adult group tour (college, professional, other) is an option for groups ranging from ten to thirty people (groups smaller than ten people are asked to visit the museum for a self-guided tour). Upon arrival to the David J. Sencer CDC Museum, the group will be greeted and oriented to CDC on the Global Symphony platform. The Global Symphony is a media installation featuring four, three–minute stories that describe in depth CDC's contributions to the elimination of polio, the investigation of Legionnaire's disease, the battle to stem the rise of obesity in the United States, and the study of how humans, animals, and the environment interact in the spread of Ebola. Following the orientation, the group will tour the current temporary exhibition and The Story of CDC exhibit.
The person requesting the tour may also request a CDC speaker by submitting a separate speaker request. Speakers are CDC employees who volunteer their time, so availability is not guaranteed.
Following the guided tour, visitors will have the opportunity to explore the exhibit area independently.
