Group Tours

To help facilitate the best possible experience for our guests, we kindly ask that groups of ten or more book a tour in advance.  (Due capacity limitations, larger groups may be turned away if proper arrangements are not made.)

Whether you would like to arrange for a small, private viewing of the Museum or ensure that special arrangements are made for your larger organization, groups of any size are welcome to book tours at the Barker Character, Comic and Cartoon Museum!

Call Laurie at 203-272-2357, ext. 238 to schedule a tour that is unlike any that your group has ever experienced!

Each visitor receives a self-guided tour booklet and a commemorative souvenir.  While there, visit the adjacent Barker Animation Art Gallery to see an amazing collection of animation art, fine art, and collectibles available for purchase.  You can stroll the extensive grounds and pose for pictures with our life-sized cartoon character cut-outs. Then visit Connecticut’s largest cartoon mural for more pictures and test your knowledge with our trivia quiz.

*As we keep our rates low for all BCCCM visitors, please be advised that caregivers are required to purchase admission when visiting the Museum with their clients.
