NEW BRITAIN MUSEUM OF AMERICAN ART

Tours

Adult Tours must be booked at least two weeks in advance as our tour schedule fills rapidly and ample time is needed to schedule docent volunteers. Before scheduling a tour please read all the guidelines and tour program offerings first. To schedule please contact the tour scheduler at reidym@nbmaa.org.

Adult Admission/Tour Fees - Docent-led tours are $15 per person. This fee includes your admission and docent-led tour fee. Free passes, membership, and library passes are NOT valid for docent-led tours.
