Docent-led tours of Museum exhibitions are available for groups of 10 or more. Tours are offered Monday through Friday beginning at 10a. Tours must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance and can include a specific exhibition or a tour of all galleries. Docents volunteer their time to tour your group and are not at the Museum on a regular basis. Please respect their time by arriving for your scheduled tour promptly.
Scheduled tours receive 10% off in The Guilders and Florida Communications Group Museum Store.
*For any questions or changes to a scheduled tour, please contact the Education Department by email. To make changes or to cancel your tour, please contact us at least a week in advance. Last minute changes cannot be guaranteed.
Docent-led tours focus on connecting students with the Museum’s collections and special exhibitions. They inspire an understanding and appreciation of the visual arts. Students are encouraged to use critical thinking and viewing skills to connect with the art on view with their studies and their own life experiences. Tours must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance.
