Private Guided Tours

Private guided tours are available for groups of up to six people. Tours must be pre-booked and last 60 minutes. Tours are led by a MOA Curator or a trained staff member.

During Public Hours: $200 + taxes
Outside Public Hours: $250 + taxes

In addition to the tour cost, museum admission group rates apply to each person in the tour group.

Self-guided Visits

Groups of various sizes (up to 35 people per 30 minutes, with physical distancing in groups of six) can pre-book a timed-entry, self-guided visit to explore the museum without a guided tour. Museum admission rates apply to each person in the group; groups of 10 or more people receive group rates.

Self-guided School Groups

School groups of various sizes (up to 35 people per 30 minutes, including students and supervisors, with physical distancing in groups of six) can pre-book a timed-entry, self-guided visit to explore the museum without a guided tour. Elementary school groups require one supervisor for every five students. Museum admission student rates apply to each student; groups of 10 or more students receive the discounted academic rate. Supervisors receive free museum admission.

Specially trained Volunteer Associates are available upon request at no extra charge, based on availability, to welcome school groups and support students’ self-guided learning.

MOA also offers a range of elementary and secondary virtual school programs.
