We greatly appreciate our guests following our historic mission in their attire at the DHC. In particular, kindly refrain from the Steampunk fantasy or modern western attire.

A few of the activities require advance ticket purchase, please see each activity page for details and requirements. Be certain to bring your camera for photo opportunities!
