Tours of the Marshall family home and the Marshall Steam Museum are available for groups of eight or more Monday through Friday, 9 am – 5 pm. Please note that no rides are offered for reserved group tours.

Tour Options:

Auburn Heights Mansion Tour: Explore the main two floors of the antiques-furnished Victorian mansion, home to three generations of the Marshall family and now managed by Delaware State Parks. Tour lasts approximately one hour.
