Explore Lawrence at your own pace with themed self-guided tours. These tours offer a glimpse into the history of Lawrence and the surrounding areas. Our current tours take you on a journey through the historic cemeteries of the area, retrace the steps of Quantrill’s Raid, visit some of the most significant basketball sites, and meander through the “crown jewel” of our Historic Downtown district, Mass Street.
The online tours offer a background of each site, plus a Google Map to help you navigate at your own pace. Start at our Visitors Center (812 Massachusetts Street) where you can pick up brochures that go with each tour. And don’t forget to stop by the Watkins Museum of History to discover the rest of the story for each topic.
