Guided Tours

Interactive guided tours are available for groups of 15 to 30 visitors. Due to our galleries’ occupancy restrictions, groups larger than 30 must schedule multiple tours. Group tours are free and last approximately one hour. During the tour, a trained gallery educator will provide an orientation to the Fowler Museum and accompany you through one of the many exhibitions on view.

Guided tours are available each Wednesday from noon to 7:00 PM, as well as each Thursday and Friday from noon to 4:00 PM. No weekend tours are available.

Self-Guided Tours

Groups of 15 or more may book a visit to explore the Fowler Museum’s current exhibitions without a guide. Self-guided tours are available Wednesday through Friday, from noon to 5:00 PM. No weekend tours are available. Please be sure to submit a Group Reservation Form above to ensure that we can accommodate your group.
