Please note: The Museum's West Building will be closed Wednesday, March 20, for Art in Bloom installation. During the four days of Art in Bloom, March 21–24, tickets are required for admission to the permanent collection in West Building. East Building and the Museum Park will remain open and free to visitors. For this popular event, we strongly encourage visitors to check online ticket availability before arriving on campus, as many time slots are sold out.
What better way to experience the permanent collection and special exhibitions at the North Carolina Museum of Art than through a guided tour?
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. Schedule four or more weeks in advance. See suggested options below.
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. Look below for more information, or schedule a tour here with our Tour Request Form.
