Tours for youth groups and 4th-grade classes.
Adobe Days Revisited field trips allow modern fourth-graders to step back in time, to visit Jotham Bixby’s bustling sheep ranch, circa 1878. Costumed interpreters invite students to see the house, learn about herbs in the garden, do customary chores in the workshop, and touch historical objects in the library. Our Adobe Days Revisited program is offered on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings, October through June. The fee is $100 per class, and the site can accommodate up to 72 children per day. Check here for more information, or call (562) 206-2040.
Rancho Adventure tours encourage children to learn about daily life on a 19th century California ranch by exploring the 1844 adobe house, doing historic chores, and playing old-fashioned games. These fast-paced, highly interactive tours are designed for homeschoolers, scouts, or other youth groups (6-30 elementary-aged children) and can be scheduled during public hours. Rancho Adventure tours last approximately 90 minutes, and the fee is $3 per person. Please call (562) 206-2040 for details.
