Student and Youth Group Tours
Due to gallery closures in anticipation of The People’s Collection, Reimagined, the NCMA is unable to accommodate guided in-gallery tour requests for student and youth groups. The Museum plans to resume guided student and youth group tours in the fall of 2022.
Please consider self-guided experiences, Park tours, or virtual field trips while the NCMA prepares to welcome young members of our community into the newly conceived thematic and interpretive galleries later this year.
If you have any questions, please email the NCMA tour administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Museum offers self-guided tours for groups to explore the People’s Collection on their own. Opportunities are also available for eligible school groups to receive free tickets to special exhibitions. Click here to learn more.

Designed for visitors who are blind or have low vision, these docent-led tours explore the Museum’s collection through audio description, tactile experiences, and by engaging the senses.

This is a recurring evening event intended for adults who are blind, have low vision, or have a disability or learning need that would benefit from a sensory-style experience.
As of August 2021, these events are being held virtually. After a short, guided meditation and audio description of the artwork, you are invited to engage with a work of art through mindful observation and discussion. Registration includes a small kit of sensory objects that participants engage with during the observation. These are mailed to registrants in advance. Please check our calendar for the next event date and time.
