What better way to experience the permanent collection and special exhibitions at the North Carolina Museum of Art than through a guided tour? Whether you’re taking a public or private guided tour, please let your docent know what accommodations would make your tour more relevant and enjoyable.
At this time we are not leading public tours or scheduling group visits or tours. Please send questions to Jennifer Coon, as our policies will evolve.
Want to explore the Museum or Park with friends, family, or colleagues and a trained volunteer guide? Talk with each other about art, artists, and the creative process in a one-hour tour of the permanent collection, a special exhibition, or the Museum Park.
Every work of art has its own story. Guided tours encourage learners to uncover these stories through shared looking, discussion, and experiences. Select a theme that relates to the North Carolina curriculum, or choose a highlights tour for your group. On most themed tours, you can expect to consider four to eight works of art and participate in gallery activities that invite closer looking and discussion. The Museum’s volunteer guides look forward to creating an engaging and enjoyable visit for your students.
You’ll see us in your inbox soon. And we hope to see you at the Museum!
