PMA Group Tours

Thank you for your interest in visiting the PMA

Our Docent tours are led by avid art-lovers and trained experts, perfect for groups of 10 or more. Advance reservations are required. We also offer self-guided visit prices for groups interested in exploring the Museum’s collection and exhibitions at their own pace. To help us tailor a program for your interests, simply fill out the Group Visit Reservation Form. Once you submit your form, a Visitor Experience Ambassador will be in touch with you to confirm. Please allow 2-3 business days to process your request.

Please read the Group Visit Policies below prior to filling in the Group Scheduling request form. 

Groups and tours can only be scheduled online; phone and email requests cannot be honored.
The PMA reserves the right not to allow large groups into the Museum without prior reservations.
Groups without a reservation will not receive discounted or expedited admission.
