The Bronx Museum

Group Tours

The Group Visits Program is the Museum’s main service to schools and community groups. Tours examine current exhibitions through thematic discussion, and provide inquiry-based and hands-on participatory experiences with contemporary art. Sessions connect contemporary artwork on view with the viewer’s personal experience to foster creative engagement, visual literacy and critical thinking.

Because Museum educators tailor tours to each specific group, tours are appropriate for all ages, from pre-kindergarten to senior citizens. They present an exciting opportunity to immerse youth and adults in art within the Bronx neighborhood, encouraging enrichment and community-building.

Please schedule all group visits no less than 1 week in advance. Please use the online forms below to schedule a group tour. For any questions about your visit, email education@bronxmuseum.org.
