Guided tours (1pm Tuesday – Saturday from Memorial Day weekend through October) are the only way to view the inside of the Leopold Shack. Learn more on our tours page.
Because the Shack is a historic and somewhat fragile site, we don’t encourage heavy visitation by grade school and middle school groups. If you’re interested in bringing younger kids for a visit, please consider our annual Family Day celebration, an event in May that caters to kids of all ages.

Another option for younger students is a visit to the Aldo Leopold Nature Center in Monona, WI, a separate but partner organization of the Leopold Foundation.
Some engineering and architecture groups want a more technical tour of the Leopold Center’s design and construction features than our staff and regular tour guides are able to give. If your group would like a more specialized tour of the center, we can work with you to schedule an “expert tour” led by members of our building team.
