Join us for a live, forty-five-minute virtual tour that brings people together for close looking and conversations focused on a current exhibition. Tours are free, interactive experiences held on Zoom. A New Museum teaching fellow will share exclusive digital content and introduce themes, artworks, behind-the-scenes insights, and questions for consideration related to the exhibition. Upcoming dates and times are listed on our events calendar.
Education and Public Engagement teaching staff lead live, participatory, virtual tours of New Museum exhibitions. Inquiry-based tours promote close looking, critical thinking, and multiple access points to connect with themes in the exhibition. Tours can be tailored to reflect specific themes and/or curricula.
Virtual tours are free for K-12 public schools and community partners. Tours for private schools, colleges, universities, and private groups are $150. Tours must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance. For more information and to schedule a tour, please complete a tour request form. The New Museum’s Education and Public Engagement team will follow up to confirm availability and tour details.
