Docent-Guided Adult Tours

Docent-guided tours for adult groups of ten people or more can be booked by special request with at least two weeks advance notice. Due to a limited number of volunteer docents, availability is not always guaranteed although we will always do our best to accommodate your request. Please call the Department of Interpretation and Audience Engagement at (504) 658-4128 for more information.

Smaller groups (under ten people) may wish to consider taking advantage of NOMA’s regularly scheduled public tours of the permanent collection and special exhibitions, which are held weekly on Sundays at 2 p.m. and most Friday evenings as part of NOMA’s Friday Nights at NOMA programming. No preregistration is necessary, but please call ahead to make sure the tour is still available.

NOMA also offers a free audio guide cell phone tour of the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden for all visitors. Please inquire at the entrance of the Besthoff Sculpture Garden for more information.

“The Thornton Dial exhibit was amazing. His work is visually arresting and dynamic. I wish we saw more works by southern artists in NY.” Erica Raven; New York, NY
