Information for Groups

Historic New Harmony will gladly customize a tour for a group’s interest and schedule. The history of New Harmony, its architecture, early community living, Victorian life, and geology are just a few of the topics that can be interpreted by our trained staff. Tours can be adapted to meet the needs of various age groups. Guided walking tours are available, as well as “step-on” or tour bus/van-based guided tours. For “step-on” tours, a trained interpreter will join guests on their tour bus, which can either stop at a number of historic sites or merely tour past them.

Groups interested in visiting Historic New Harmony should contact Historic New Harmony at 812-682-4488 or 800.231.2168, or Discounted group rates are available.
