Tours

Beaumont Tower is usually open to visitors during University Carillonneur Ray McLellan's weekly performances, which take place from noon to 12:30 p.m. on the day of student lessons. Groups wishing to arrange a tour of the tower and carillon at other times should contact McLellan by phone at (517) 432-4066 or by e-mail at rm@msu.edu at least one month before the proposed date of the tour.

Except where noted, tours of the tower and carillon are free and are usually offered for at least 20 minutes either before or after a concert. In a few instances, tours may occur during a carillon performance; in most cases they will take place immediately following the performance. 

The carillon performance chamber is on the fourth floor of the tower (73 steps up) behind the clock face. There is no elevator or restroom facility in the structure.
