Guided Tours

Guided tours of our museum sites should be scheduled in advance,especially to accommodate larger groups. We offer a variety of different tours designed to showcase the many stories we tell about the county's history. Tours of the Courthouse-on-the-Square offer a glimpse into the county's past, and the events that led to what we know as Denton County today. We cover a variety of information spanning from civic education on the role of county government in the lives of residents to more specific information on the particular history of the structure itself, including its historical role in the local community. The Denton County Historical Park offers tours of the Bayless-Selby house which takes a look at life in the county as it was 100 years ago, and tours of the Quakertown House tell the story of Quakertown and the residents that lived there. Tours can be tailored to your needs depending on your curriculum studies, the number of people in your group, and time that you are available.


Self-Guided Tours

Self-guided tours are always available during regular hours and they offer you a chance to craft your own experience and spend time investigating the items and stories that are most interesting and relevant to you. You are welcome to come in and explore any of our exhibits at the Courthouse-on-the-Square or at the Historical Park at your own leisure.
