Schedule a Tour
- Please plan to arrive to the Powerhouse main entry lobby at least 10 minutes prior to the tour’s scheduled start time, as we may not be able to accommodate late arrivals.
- Please wear comfortable, closed-toe shoes as they are required in some areas of the building on the tour.
- Parking information: Parking at the Powerhouse is limited, so please plan to park at one of our alternate lots (no pass/fee required). Both lots are just a short walk from the building. More information about parking alternatives and directions to Powerhouse can be found here.
