SCHEDULING A TOUR:
Do you want to bring your class, club or colleagues to the Museum? For groups larger than 10 people, the Museum of Photographic Arts offers a variety of tour options.
In order to schedule a tour, please fill out the Tour Request Form and a member of our staff will follow up with you. Requests must be submitted three weeks in advance of your visit. Availability is limited, so submitting a tour request does not guarantee that you will get your first choice of date and time.
MOPA is not able to offer tours on holidays, the 2nd Tuesday of each month or during December Night's (Dec. 4 & 5).
Tour fees and MOPA's Tour Agreement are due upon arrival for your tour.
Self-directed tours give your group the opportunity to experience the exhibitions at your own pace. The interpretive text found throughout the galleries is designed to educate people of all ages and abilities. There is a maximum of 30 people per tour.
Available Tuesday-Sunday, from 10 AM - 4 PM
MOPA is currently undergoing changes to our tour program and guided tours are limited. We look forward to launching new programming soon. Thank you for your patience.
Guided tours provide a more structured experience than self-directed tours. MOPA’s gallery education staff will facilitate a discussion about the images on display that teach visual literacy skills. These tours use inquiry-based methods to help participants learn critical viewing and discussion skills. There is a maximum of 30 people per tour.
Available Wednesday-Friday, from 10 AM - 1 PM
During behind-the-scenes tours, a member of the MOPA Team will provide an exclusive look at the internal operations of a museum. You will be taken on a tour through the galleries, library and curatorial workshops. Rather than focusing on specific exhibitions, this tour focuses on the programs and curatorial processes that shape MOPA. There is a maximum of 30 people per tour.
Available Tuesday-Friday, from 10 AM - 4 PM
