Dive deeper into the life and work of Charles Umlauf with a docent-led tour of the museum and garden!
The UMLAUF Sculpture Garden + Museum uses its collection of more than 200 sculptures, paintings, and drawings by 20th century American sculptor Charles Umlauf as a teaching tool to encourage the understanding and appreciation of sculpture. We offer many opportunities for all to enjoy the plentiful riches in the Garden.
Admission to the UMLAUF includes a self-guided sculpture tour, and docent-led tours take place the third Saturday of every month.
Childcare groups with 8 or more children under 12 must contact the UMLAUF for advance admission prior to your visit. There is a Group Fee of $1/child and $7/chaperone.

Join us on the third Saturday of every month at 12pm to join our docent for a fun and insightful tour through the Garden. Our highly trained docents will lead small groups through the UMLAUF, creating a unique and memorable experience rich in history. The tours are free with admission and registration is not required. Come see the Garden from a whole new perspective!
