Self-Guided Tours

Lead your own tour of the museum and explore at your own pace. Leaders of self-guided groups may lecture in the galleries, although BMA Guided Tours have priority over the objects and the spaces.

Recommendations for Self-Guided Tours

  • Visit the BMA before your scheduled visit to make plans.
  • Take advantage of our free online teacher resources for preparation, pre-visit activities, or follow-up activities.

Self-Guided Tours are free but must be booked at least 2 weeks prior to the date of your visit. You may book by filling out the tour request form.
