Tours & Group Visits

Group Visits

Adult Tours

This year we are unable to offer guided adult tours at the museum. Please explore our many virtual programs, such as BMA x NMWA, Violet Hour, and Art Break Live. We look forward to welcoming your group back to the BMA when it is safer to do so.

School Tours

This year the BMA is excited to offer virtual school tours to Baltimore City and Baltimore County schools that participate in Close Encounters or Literacy through Art. We hope to add tours for other school districts and programs later this year.

If you are a Baltimore County teacher who would like to schedule a Literacy through Art tour, please use this form. We ask that you book your tour 6 weeks in advance.

If you are a Baltimore City teacher interested in applying to participate in Close Encounters, please contact Suzy Wolffe, Manager of Tour Experience, at


The BMA is proud to have longstanding partnerships with Baltimore City and Baltimore County Public Schools. Learn more about how you can get involved.

Self Guided Tours

Small self guided groups are always welcome to lead their own tours at the BMA. However, please review our visit policies to make sure that you, and all our guests, have the safest visit possible.

Interactive Gallery Workshops

Work with an educator to customize an interactive workshop that supports your professional goals. Workshops may range from 90 minutes to 3 hours and can encompass a series of visits. Learn more about these dynamic, fee-based workshops for university, professional, and community groups.

Audio Tours

Enrich your experience with fresh perspectives on art. We have audio tours available on a variety of subjects, many of which are available to download from iTunesU. Bring your own smartphone or device, or borrow a complimentary device at the Welcome Desk. Available in English only. Assisted listening devices are available.
