Private Tours

About

Private guided tours are led by artist guides—practicing artists who receive special training around each MCA exhibition. Our guides are experts at sharing background information about the artists and artworks, providing social and historical context, and creating connections with everyday life.

Tour fees include the cost of museum admission. Please make your tour request at least one month prior. All tours must be fully paid two weeks in advance. Payment for private guided tours is nonrefundable and nontransferable.
