Group Visits, Field Trips & Guided Tours

Community and school groups are always welcome! Make an appointment for a self-guided visit or let us set up an adventure for your group. Whether it’s a school field trip, a scouting troop, a senior outing, or just a general tour for your interested group.

What does  Northport Historical Society have to offer?

  • Highlights of Northport’s rich history through our permanent exhibit “Our Stories: The History of a Community”
  • A viewing of our rotating exhibit, currently “From a One School Community to a Community of Schools” all about the evolution of the Northport-East Northport School District.
  • An educational and fun historic information hunt, a fill in the blank activity that fosters movement and engagement throughout our gallery.
  • Viewing of our newly refurbished diorama, which depicts the early days of Main Street through its historic buildings.
  • A historic postcard activity, during which attendees are asked to write to a friend explaining what was most memorable about our museum. We take care of the postage, attendees just need to come with the address.
  • Tour of our delightfully eclectic Museum Shop.
  • Snack time, when appropriate.

Is there a fee for the visit?

  • We have a suggested donation policy of $5 per visitor though those with financial hardships will not be turned away.
