NEW! We are pleased to offer a dynamic, personalized experience via our award-winning app interface, ASK Brooklyn Museum. This hour-long Highlights and Hidden Gems tour allows you to go at your own pace, selecting which works to see. The ASK app connects you to a team of experts who text in real time, sharing information and encouraging dialogue. It’s like having a friendly art history buff in your pocket as you explore.

We can also arrange tours in Spanish, Russian, and French. Let us know what your group's language needs are when you make your reservation (see Reserve Your Tour below).

Guided tours include three to five artworks using discussion and sensory experiences that accommodate diverse learning needs. When making your reservation (see Reserve Your Tour below), let us know if your group needs wheelchairs, American Sign Language interpretation, assistive-listening devices, or other assistance. 

Reserve Your Tour

To schedule a guided tour, make sure to get in touch with us at least three weeks in advance. For a self-guided tour, contact us as soon as you know the date you'd like to visit. Submit a reservation request online or fax a completed reservation request form to the number below. If you give us at least two possible dates/times, we'll have a better chance of making sure the tour you want is scheduled.

Tours involve walking and standing. If any members of your group need a wheelchair, let us know ahead of time. All of our galleries are wheelchair accessible.

Once the date and time of your visit are confirmed, we'll send you a confirmation letter with check-in information and other details about your tour. We'll also need an advance deposit. Guided groups should arrive 15 minutes before the tour starts.

Catered meals are provided by our exclusive caterer, Great Performances, and are available for guided tours. Ask us about catering when making your reservation.
