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.
FREE WEDNESDAY EVENINGS
Private Group Tours
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. For more information, or to submit an online request, visit the Group Sales page, or contact the Group Sales Office at (602) 307-2090, or email@example.com.
Arts Engagement Program
The Arts Engagement Program (AEP) is an innovative model program that brings the benefits of the visual arts to adults with mild to moderate stage Alzheimer's disease (and various forms of dementia) and their care partners. Recent research suggests that involvement in arts and cultural activities contributes to overall quality oflife by offering meaningful opportunities for companionship, social engagement, and community participation. Visual arts in the Museum offer a static collection of objects that can help trigger personal stories and experiences for participants, and tap into one's emotional, not visual, memory.
Off-site Adult Programs
Community Outreach Program
Phoenix Art Museum Docents present image-based programs in our community on a wide range of art-related topics. They are an hour long, and can feature a topic of your choice*. The Community Outreach (no link) program is available for senior community and living centers throughout the Valley. Community and special-interest groups may also request talks.
*All off-site programs are by prior arrangements (no link) only with at least 3 weeks advance notice, subject to docent availability, and according to established fee scales. For further information call the Group Sales Office at (602) 257-4356, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
