Group Tours + Workshops

Informal tours of our current exhibitions are available for visitors on request during gallery hours. 

Group tours may be booked in advance for groups of all interests, including camps, guides/scouts, school, church and special interest. New to contemporary art? We are happy to tailor your tour to meet your needs. Exhibition tours are approximately 45 minutes in length and are available year-round (except statutory holidays). Exhibition tours during gallery hours are free with admission (suggested admission $5 per person). A tour can also be combined with a 90 minute hands-on art activity led by a practicing artist for $20 per person/minimum 10 people.
