We do not recommend using Kensico’s address as a GPS locator. It will take you to our Maintenance Building on Lakeview. Look for the event directional signs, and staff will be on hand for check-in.

Restrooms at the Administration Building are open before the tour begins, we will have bottled water available, and we recommend comfortable walking shoes.
