Groups and Tours

The Duluth Depot truly has something for everyone. Not a lot of attractions can say that, but with eight organizations under one roof, it’s a pretty sure thing. History. Culture. Art. Education. Ojibwe Heritage. Theater. Immigrant Experiences. Veterans Memorials. Oh, and did we mention TRAINS? We have special Group Rates and love to give Guided Group Tours with advance planning. Whether you want to bring a school group or scout troop, or would like to add us to an itinerary for an adult day trip… we’ll make sure your visit to the Duluth Depot leaves everyone with magical memories! Just fill out the form below and submit that to get the process started.


Depot Docents are on hand to offer FREE guided tours of our building and love to show it off! During the winter hours, between Labor Day and Memorial Day, we offer these tours on a limited schedule Monday through Friday at 1:00pm. If you are interested in a tour, just gather in the Great Hall at that time or let our Visitor Service Desk know when you purchase your admission ticket. Weekend tours are offered on Saturdays at 10:00am with advance request.  If these times don’t work for you, please send us an email in the form below and we would be happy to arrange a tour.


The Depot is a perfect place for school trips. With several history museums and an art museum all in one location, there are exhibits and content here to supplement nearly anything you’re studying in the classroom. All school group visits come with a Guided Group Tour and age-appropriate activities for the kids to engage in while exploring our Lake Superior Railroad Museum.

If you’re looking to round out your school visit, consider taking in a performance of the Duluth Playhouse’s Children’s Theatre, or perhaps a ride on the North Shore Scenic Railroad. Also within walking distance of the Depot is the Duluth Public Library, which is located just across the street, and the Great Lakes Aquarium and Playfront Park, both just a seven minute walk across the bridge.

School Group Rates are as follows*:

  • Elementary School Students $4
  • Middle School / High School Students $5
  • Preschool Students $2

*These rates are only valid with an organized school group, booked in advance.
