Special Thursday Tours

About This Project

We’re open until 9pm on Thursdays, which means it’s a perfect time to come to the museum and enjoy one of our special guided tours. MOA invites curators as well as local community members, artists, academics, and activists to provide varied and dynamic perspectives about the included works and highlighted themes. Let these guides expand your understanding, direct your attention to critical ideas, and spark your curiosity. Free with museum admission.
