A few notes:

-A tour request is not the same as a booking, as there may be a prior event or booking. You will be contacted by museum staff to confirm your group's visit and answer any additional questions.
-Visitors may park in the Museum lot at no charge. A bus/van lane is available in front of the main entrance.
- Group tours are limited to groups larger than 10.
-Tours are available Monday-Friday, 8 a.m-5 p.m.
-All tours are free. A related art activity can be added to your visit for groups of 40 or fewer at a time for a charge of $1 per student.
