Virtual Tours

Virtual group tours are available year‑round. Reservations are required. We ask that you give us at least two weeks’ notice prior to when you would like your tour.

Tour Length and Language

Group tours run for about 45 minutes. Tour length and content can be adjusted to fit your group’s needs. Private group tours are available in English, but you may inquire about reserving a bilingual or ASL guide when booking a private group tour.

Tour Fees & Cancellation Policy

$50 for a 45-minute virtual tour for up to 25 people + $30 processing fee.

We can only accept credit card payments at this time.

Once processed this fee cannot be refunded. However, we can always reschedule your tour for another time.

How it Works

Virtual tours are conducted via Zoom. You will need a strong internet connection and a computer with a microphone and speakers to attend these tours. The Museum collection will be shared with you on Zoom using images and 360 renderings of the galleries. You may interact with your tour guide by asking questions or typing comments in the Zoom chat.

One week prior to your tour we will schedule a test call to ensure that you are set up and ready for your virtual tour.
