Regular tours begin with a viewing of Sam Davis: His Life, Legend, and Legacy in our elegant theatre. When the film ends, you are encouraged to spend as much time as you like in the galleries of the museum which opened in November 2003. After your self-guided tour of the museum, a site interpreter will lead you on a guided tour through the grounds, outbuildings, and historic Sam Davis Home. Allow approximately an hour and a half to enjoy the full tour.
