Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art is pleased to offer opportunities for your group to tour our Museum and its wonderful trails and grounds. Our private guided Group Tours are led by trained volunteers who give their time to provide our touring guests the best guest experience possible.
Private guided Group Tours for groups ($10 per guest) are offered daily to groups having a minimum of 10 guests and a maximum of 60 guests. Private Group Tours are not available on Tuesdays when the Museum is closed. To secure a date that works for your group, we encourage you to schedule as far in advance as possible.
