Book a Visit

We’re excited to welcome schools back to the Museum for our exciting, educator-led guided visits designed for K–12 audiences, as well as self-guided options for school groups. We currently offer in-person Guided Gallery Visits or Self-Guided Visits, and remote Virtual Gallery Visits via Zoom. Book your visit today!

Making a Reservation
To request a reservation, complete a booking form for virtual or in-person visits. We’re unable to process reservations by phone, fax, or mail.

Reservations are processed in the order we receive them. Within two weeks of submitting your reservation request, you’ll receive a confirmation with your scheduled date and time of your visit, or alternate dates if we are unable to accommodate your original request. Your reservation isn’t complete until you receive a confirmation email from us with an invoice that includes the exact time and date of your visit.

Cancellations and Rescheduling
If you need to cancel, please contact us as soon as possible by emailing youth.tours@brooklynmuseum.org. We reserve the right to cancel Gallery Visits based on illness or other extenuating circumstances beyond our control, though this is an infrequent occurrence. If we have to cancel a visit, we’ll notify you as far in advance as possible. If we cancel your reservation, then we will help you reschedule. Although we’ll do our best, we can’t guarantee that we’ll be able to reschedule your visit; if we are unable to reschedule, we'll provide a full refund.

Payment
Payment is made either in advance or upon your arrival at the Museum on the day of your visit. As soon as you arrive, check in at Admissions, located in our lobby. Payments can be made by credit card, check, or purchase order. To pay by purchase order, email youth.tours@brooklynmuseum.org with the order, along with a class roster and your reservation number.
