Request a Tour


The museum is temporarily closed to the public in response to COVID-19, and we are not scheduling tours at this time.


Thank you for your interest in a museum tour, which you can book online using the form below. Our tours, designed for ten to forty people, are led by experienced docents. Reservations for a guided tour are required at least three weeks in advance. We will get back to you as soon as possible to confirm your details and finalize your booking.

Docents lead free walk-in tours of the galleries on Saturdays and Sundays at 1:30 p.m. that do not require a reservation. You are also welcome to visit without a guided tour any time the museum is open.

The museum is located at 701 21st Street, NW, Washington, D.C. The closest metro station is Foggy Bottom-GWU (Blue, Orange, and Silver lines).
