Tours

Are you seeking a guided tour for an academic group? If you are with an academic institution and are planning a class visit, inquire with our Education Division for information about K–12 school group or university tours.

Our Visitor Experience department offers private group tours on a range of topics, all led by a team of knowledgeable and friendly art historians and educators. 

To book a one-hour long tour of our collection highlights or a special exhibition, please see below and contact us three weeks in advance of your preferred visit date. 

Tours are for adult groups of eight to twelve guests. Groups larger than twelve may be split into multiple tours with staggered start times for an optimal gallery experience. We typically schedule tours during the Museum’s public hours, Wednesday through Sunday, 11 am–6 pm. To learn more about pricing for private after-hours tours, contact grouptours@brooklynmuseum.org.
