Guided tours of the Palmer Museum of Art are offered free of charge for University, school, and community groups of ten or more people.

Guided tours are currently closed while we start our transition to the new museum at the Arboretum.

Sunday Public Tours

Drop in once a month on special Sundays at 2:00 p.m. for free, hour-long explorations of the galleries with friendly and knowledgeable guides.

Scheduled Group Tours

With the museum’s Curtin Road location closing after May 14, we are no longer able to accommodate requests for guided tours.


We hope you will plan to join us and explore the galleries on your own through May 14 or with a self-guided tour available at the Visitor Services desk.

Self-Guided Group Visits

Groups that prefer to explore the museum on their own are welcome to visit during regular hours of operation. To avoid overcrowding in the galleries or conflicts with other programs, please contact us at least one week in advance.
