Guided Tours, Group Visits & More

Guided Tours

BMAC’s friendly and knowledgeable staff and volunteer docents look forward to welcoming your group to the Museum. Guided tours are available on Saturdays and Sundays at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Admission is free and no appointment is necessary. Guided tours are available on weekdays by appointment. Please try to schedule your tour at least two weeks in advance. We recommend that you allow one hour for a guided tour. 

Group Visits and Field Trips

BMAC offers art discussion and making programs on-site at the museum as well as offsite at schools, senior homes, and other community venues. We recommend 1.5 hours for on-site group visits and field trips to allow time for art-making activities in addition to the tour. Admission for group visits and field trips is free. Please try to schedule your visit at least two weeks in advance.

Self-Guided Group Visits

Groups of all sizes and ages are welcome to tour the Museum on their own, without a guide. We ask that groups of 10 or more contact us in advance to schedule your visit. Self-guided group visits generally take place during regular museum hours (Wednesday-Sunday, 10-4). We can occasionally accommodate visits outside those hours.

Admission for self-guided group visits is free.
