I took the 8 flags tour at the museum in mid-August. I wasn't sure what this tour was about, but I had the time and it was very hot outside so I decided to check it out.
The docent conducting the tour really knew her history and did an excellent job of explaining how the area was under the rule of 8 flags during different periods of time. I believe she indicated she was a former teacher. We moved to several different rooms during the hour plus tour.
I'm not sure this tour would be suitable for young children or adults, for that matter, if they tend to get restless or if you are on a schedule. The tour was long and at times I felt that I was in a classroom.
However, if you enjoy history and have extra time, this was very informative and a great history lesson.
I believe you can visit the museum without doing the tour if you want.
