Facilitated tours are led by our gallery educators and foster a deep understanding of the content by guiding conversations about the artworks to practice deep looking, and seek evidence to support their observations.

For those with participants under the age of 18, one chaperon per every 15 youth is required and groups must remain together. Chaperones are responsible for enforcing gallery guidelines. Facilitated tours must be requested three weeks in advance of your planned visit.
