Guided Tours

Free guided tours are led by docent volunteers who have completed a comprehensive training program through the museum. Informative, interactive art appreciation tours are designed to facilitate understanding of contemporary art in our exhibitions and in the permanent collection on view throughout campus. Tours are available for college classes, community groups and school groups, starting with kindergarten, with five to 50 individuals.

Tours are typically one hour and cover approximately 10 works of art.

Guided tours will be offered by reservation only on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays or Saturdays between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. pending docent availability, excluding days the college is closed. Refer to our our group and tour guidelines for information regarding group size and chaperones.

Self-Guided Tours

The museum is free and open to the public by reservation during regular hours. Printed visitor orientation guides are available at the museum information desk, or copies may be mailed upon request.
