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.




 All tours are scheduled by request. Please note that tour requests must be submitted at least three weeks in advance of the date of visit. Reservations are taken on a first-come, first-served basis.


To begin scheduling a tour, please complete and submit the Tour Registration Form. If you are scheduling a tour on behalf of a school, please complete and submit the Tour Registration Form for Schools. After submitting a form, Museum staff will contact you to confirm the details. 


For organizations lacking funding resources, we offer fee waivers to cover the cost of guided tours. The Tour Registration Form, above, will walk you through the process of requesting a fee wavier. You will need to provide a letter on official letterhead stating why your group is unable to afford the cost of a tour and how participants would benefit from a guided visit.
