Krasl Art Center and The Heritage Museum & Cultural Center offer sculpture walking tours and public history tours alternating every Thursday from May 31 through August 30. The guided tours begin at 5:30pm and run an hour in length. While both tours are free, a suggested donation of $5 will support the Heritage Museum and Krasl Art Center.

All tours will gather and begin inside the Whitcomb building (509 Ship Street). The Whitcomb Senior Living Community welcomes walking tour guests to enter the lobby of their historic building, constructed as a modern resort hotel in 1928.
