Guided Tours

The daily guided tour, the "Encyclopedia of the American Indian" includes historical and archaeological information along with guidance and insight from American Indian elders. The tour is offered at 10:30 am, 11:30 a.m., 1 p.m., 2 p.m. 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. on days/hours that we are open to the public.  Tours start at the rockface and are led by a guide who points out the carvings, interprets possible meanings of the petroglyphs and provides information about the people who made them.  The ability to see the carvings depends on the lighting conditions and angle of the sun, which is affected by the time of day, weather and season. On sunny days, the tour guide may use a mirror and board to help enhance visibility. Tours are not held during thunderstorms. At the end of the tour, guests can look for more carvings, return to the visitor center or continue on a half mile trail which loops through the virgin and restored prairie and ends at the visitor center.

Please arrive at the site about 1/2 hour prior to the time of the tour departure. Reservations are recommended. Group size is limited to 15 participants. Call 507-628-5591 or email jefferspetroglyphs@mnhs.org for guided tour reservations.
