Explore the Center’s collections, special exhibitions, and architecture. Available to everyone, tours of the collections encourage close looking and critical thinking.

All tours are canceled until further notice. We apologize for the inconvenience.

The Center offers a variety of public tours that are free to join throughout the year. These include docent-led architecture, introductory, and special exhibition tours. Curator-led members’ tours are offered the opening week of an exhibition.

Private and School Tours

Tours can be customized to connect content from the collections to specific interests or class curricula. The Education staff supports multiple visits throughout the year, when possible, as they enable visitors and students to gain confidence and comfort in the museum.
