On-site Adult Programs

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.

Arts Engagement Program

Do you know someone who is affected by dementia or Alzheimer's disease? Scientific studies have shown that regular mental stimulation has a positive effect on those affected by these conditions. This innovative, six-part program actively engages adults with mild to moderate dementia and their care partners with the visual arts. The program blends facilitated conversations around artworks in the collection that aid in triggering memories and strengthening observational skills and focus. Each session explores new artistic themes in a welcoming and social environment.

Cost per session (for both participants) is $50.00. This fee includes luncheon for two, six interactive programs, a one-year Membership for non-members, and all materials. Sessions are offered every Fall, Spring, and Summer. Register early, as space is limited. For more information or to enroll for the upcoming session, call (602) 307-2032.

Arts Engagement Program is generously supported by Shawn & Joe Lampe.
