Docent-Guided Adult Tours
Docent-Guided tours for adult groups of 10 persons or more can be booked by special request with at least 2 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 10 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 pm. No preregistration is necessary but please call ahead to make sure the tour is still available.
The Museum also offers a free cell phone tour of the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden for all visitors. Please inquire at the entrance to the Sculpture Garden for more information and an itinerary.
