Adult Tours

We are offering Self-Guided Experiences only at this time.  

Since the CDC has updated public health recommendations allowing fully vaccinated individuals to resume activities without wearing masks or physically distancing, Reiman Gardens and Iowa State University have updated the mask mandate to a mask recommendation when indoors. This will be the case for all upcoming education programs, group visits, and events, and capacity has returned to normal for most spaces.

An added note from ISU President Wendy Wintersteen: “Whether someone is wearing a face covering – or is not wearing a face covering – should not be used as an indication of their vaccination status.” We will not be asking folks about their vaccination status and are trusting our public to make this choice for themselves and others. CLICK HERE for more information.

Private Behind-the-Scenes Tours in the Entomology Lab are also available for small groups CLICK HERE for more information.
