Tours & groups

What type of group visit are you interested in? 

MAAM offers two types of group visits: self-guided and guided. A self-guided experience allows your group to explore the museum independently, at your leisure (without a MAAM facilitator). A guided experience is facilitated by a museum staff person. Standard guided experiences last one hour. 

Adult Groups (18+)  

  • All groups of five (5) or more individuals must register at least two weeks in advance of the anticipated visit date. 
  • MAAM can accommodate groups of 35 individuals or less. 
  • Group visits are preferred on Thursday or Friday. 
  • We are unable to accommodate guided group visits on Saturday or Sunday.  
  • At this time, we are able to accommodate a limited number of guided group groups during closed hours based on availability. 
  • In order to respond to high demand, we must limit each organization to no more than one group of up to 35 people per day.
  • Your visit is confirmed only when you receive a confirmation letter by email from MAAM. 

MAAM Guided Group Visit Voluntary Contribution: 

Beginning January 2024, MassArt Art Museum invites organizations requesting a guided group visit to consider a voluntary contribution to support free access to art for all. Organizations wishing to visit MAAM without making a voluntary contribution are encouraged to explore the self-guided group visit option. 

  • Suggested Voluntary Contribution: $150 per guided group visit of 25 individuals or less; $5 per each additional individual beyond 25. Standard guided group visits are one hour in duration. 
  • Guided group visits are always free for Massachusetts College of Art and Design and Boston Public Schools.  


MassArt Groups 

  • Complete the group visit request to indicate your interest in a guided or self-guided experience. 
  • All groups of five (5) or more individuals (including MassArt students and courses) must register at least two weeks in advance of the anticipated visit date, even if self-guided.
