Daily Public Guided Tours
To enhance your museum experience, we offer several guided tours for adults and students. Museum tours are provided by a Docent, who is trained to speak knowledgeably and engage people in conversations about objects in the Museum’s collection. All public tours are included with admission, and begin in the main lobby.

The Museum welcomes adult groups to schedule private docent-guided tours for a unique, personalized experience. Special dining options are also available with a group booking. Private tour requests require a minimum of 7 adults, and at least 3 weeks advance notice.

Arts Engagement Program
The Arts Engagement Program (AEP) connects adults living with Alzheimer's disease and mild to moderate dementia to the benefits of the visual arts alongside their care partners. Research suggests that involvement in arts and cultural activities contributes to overall quality of life by offering meaningful opportunities for companionship, social engagement, and community participation.
At Phoenix Art Museum, we value the opportunity to spend time together exploring and making art. AEP workshops are interactive and encourage participants to engage with the creative process and share personal stories in a welcoming, safe, and fun environment.
AEP sessions are offered during the Fall and Spring. Groups meet every other week for 16 weeks (eight meetings total). Participants spend each two-hour workshop with a group of other caregivers and partners, alternating between studio visits and gallery conversations.
The registration fee for AEP is $50.00 total per participant group (one-time payment). Space is limited and registration is required.
The Arts Engagement Program is generously supported in honor of the caregivers who support their partners with love, respect, patience, and laughter and make a difference every day, and by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona.
