Tours can accommodate up to seven participants, plus care partners. Larger groups will be asked to divide into smaller groups before the visit.
$75 per group up to seven participants; no cost for care-partners; scholarships are available for facilities with need.
Tours are designed as 90-minute experiences to allow for ample time to engage participants and move from one work of art to another. However, tours can be shortened to accommodate your schedule.
Days and Times
Weekday afternoon visits are encouraged during the school year (September through May). Morning and weekend visits are possible, space permitting. Earliest tour time begins at 10:15 a.m. Latest tour time begins at 3:30 p.m.
Groups may unload and check in at the Courtyard Entrance located at the back entrance of the museum. From there, the group will go directly to the galleries via elevators. Larger busses will be directed to parking. Vans may park on-site.
- Seating is provided at each work of art for participants who are mobile to assist with focus and fatigue and lessen feelings of agitation and desire to wander. Seated movement inspired by works of art can be added to your tour experience upon request.
- Amplification headsets are available with advanced notice.
- A limited number of wheelchairs are available onsite with advanced notice. Care partners are required to push participants in wheelchairs.
- Take-home reproductions of works of art discussed are provided to each participant. Each facility also receives copies to display on bulletin boards or use in follow-up conversations.
Care partners are important to you and to us! We encourage care partners to support participant response and continue discussions after the tour. Facilities are expected to provide as many care partners as needed for the safety and guidance of residents or members of day programs. Care partners must always stay with the group and be attentive to the needs of the participants during the tour. The museum does not provide care partner staffing.
