Behind-the-Scenes Guided Tour Pass: Do you see a closed door or a velvet rope and wonder, what in the world are they hiding back there? Find out! Book a private behind-the-scenes tour for your family or friend group. We’ll explore normally off-limits parts of the Village, including a secret jail cell and vault. Tours are approximately 60-90 minutes. Due to the historic nature of our buildings, some of our behind-the-scenes spaces require guests to climb up and down stairs, with no ramp or elevator access. If you have any questions about accessibility, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 248-524-3570 and we’ll be happy to provide specifics and to tailor the tour to meet your needs. Price: $12/person (minimum 4 people) Request Info & Reserve a Tour Date
