Group Visits Program
About the Group Visits Program 

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 note that all guided group visits are temporarily suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to sharing the museum with your group as soon as we can. 


In the meantime, we invite you to explore our Bronx Museum at Home videos and to email us at if you have a suggestion for further virtual programming.

The Guided Tour examines contemporary artwork on view through participatory activities and inquiry-based discussion.
