Payment in full is required one week prior to your tour date. Cheekwood accepts checks made payable to Cheekwood, cash, and all major credit cards. A 25% non-refundable deposit of your tour’s total balance is necessary to hold a tour reservation and must be provided upon booking. No refunds are given if cancellation occurs less than one week prior to your scheduled tour date.

Tour Confirmation:
Shortly after you schedule your visit, you will receive an email including a tour confirmation form, Cheekwood map, museum and garden etiquette, and parking information. Please review this information carefully and notify Cheekwood immediately if you need to make any changes or cancellations.

Any additional group members added after payment has been submitted will be charged standard admission rates upon arrival.

Late Arrivals:
Cheekwood cannot guarantee a guided tour for groups that arrive more than 30 minutes after their scheduled tour time. However, if you are delayed, we will try to accommodate your group with a self-guided tour.

We recommend arriving 30 minutes prior to your scheduled tour time for parking and check-in.
