Overview: Don’t see what you’re looking for in one of our existing field trip options? Perhaps you want to bring a group to tour the Almaden Quicksilver Mining Museum or want to bring your Girl Scouts out on a guided nature-hike? Let us know what you are looking for, and we’ll do our best to accommodate if staff is available. Custom tours are available on a limited basis. 

Currently the Almaden Quicksilver Mining Museum is not accepting tour requests due to limited visitor capacity because of poor air circulation.
