Book a Tour Today!

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. Because our guided Group Tour program relies on a cadre of trained volunteers, we are unable to guarantee Guide availability for every date and time requested.

Arrivals & Delays

Tour Groups should plan to arrive 15 minutes prior to their scheduled tour/meal time. Groups arriving earlier than that may be asked to remain on their bus until a member of the Group Tours staff can greet them and orient them to Crystal Bridges. In the event of a travel delay, groups should contact Crystal Bridges to inform the Group Tour staff as soon as possible. Crystal Bridges cannot guarantee Tour Guide availability for groups arriving 15 minutes or more after their scheduled tour time.

Directions & Parking

If traveling by motor coach, bus, or van (vehicles with a seating capacity greater than 15), please inform your driver to drop guests off at the main entrance. After all guests have disembarked the motor coach, the driver will need to park at Orchards Park, which is located directly across NE J Street from the Museum entrance. The walk to the Museum from Orchards Park, via our beautiful trails, is approximately 10 minutes. If traveling by cars, simply park in the upper or lower parking areas located adjacent to the Museum. If these lots are filled, you may park in the Additional Parking lot near NE J Street. There is a regular shuttle service between this lot and the main entrance to the Museum.

14 days’ notice is required to cancel a tour.
