Expanded King's Chapel History Tour Hours

Thank you to all who visited and toured King’s Chapel following our grand reopening in September! It has been a pleasure to welcome visitors back into the historic chapel and share our history in this space once again!

Throughout October, History Program hours are extended! We are now open from 10 AM to 4 PM on Wednesdays through Saturdays, and hope to remain open through the rest of the year. In addition to guided sanctuary tours offered on the hour, the chapel is now open for self-guided tours. Visitors may explore the chapel at their own pace, with the guidance of interpretive signs throughout the space and the expertise of our team of Historic Site Educators. While advance tickets are still recommended for guided tours, both tour tickets and self-guided admission are available for purchase on-site. We hope to see you soon!

Wednesdays through Saturdays from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM

*Please note that we're closing early on Saturday 10/9 and opening late Saturday 10/23. Please contact the Program Director (faye@kings-chapel.org) for any questions**
