Adult Group Tours

The Works is a "must see" destination for adult social groups, organizations and motor coach tours.

Tour attendees remember their visit to The Works for years to come by participating in a glass experience.

The Works is a great destination for visitors of any age! Each year, the museum welcomes adults eager to explore and experience all The Works has to offer. Our two-story museum houses exhibits dedicated to the history of Licking County's transportation, manufacturing, and industry. Tour groups are also introduced to our innovative art gallery space, restored interurban railway car, and hands-on science labs.

Groups may also elect to add on to their tour experience by visiting The Works Letter Press, Ohio & Erie Canal Lock #9, or watching a live glass blowing demonstration in the Glass Studio.
