Guided group tours are provided on a limited basis at the discretion and availability of the Museum Director. Guided tours can connect the exhibition with themes or content that your group may be interested in or provide a general overview of artwork on view.

Self-guided tours are available to all groups who wish to tour the museum at their own pace. If you plan to bring in a group (or multiple groups) of 10 or more for a self-guided visit, we ask that you fill out our online tour form so we can be prepared for your arrival.
