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.

We recommend that you allow one hour for a guided tour, 1.5 hours if you are a school group planning to conclude your visit with an engaging, age-appropriate activity based on the current exhibits.

Guided tours may be scheduled weekdays, 9-4, and occasionally on the weekend. Admission is free for school groups, $35 for adult groups of 6-10, and $45 for groups of 11 or more. 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 for school groups, $20 for groups of 6-10, and $30 for groups of 11 or more.

For more information on guided tours and self-guided group visits, please call 802-257-0124, ext. 101 or send email to

Fun with Food and Art

A Family Program in Partnership with the Brattleboro Food Coop

Each month families gather at the Museum to take a close look at some of the art on display and then make their our own creations with guidance from Museum staff. They then head across the street to the Brattleboro Food Coop to make something delicious related to their conversation and discoveries. Sessions are generally held on a weekday between 3:30 and 5:30. Open to all ages. Limited to 15 participants and registration is required. 

Check the Brattleboro Food Coop calendar for the schedule and to find out what this month’s theme will be. 

Note: This program is currently on hiatus because of Covid-19.
