Personalized tours are a wonderful way to get the most out of your museum visit. The CMA is a great place for group trips and is fully accessible.
The CMA incorporates an approach called Visual Thinking Strategies, an inquiry-based method of discussing art, in all of its tours. With VTS, rather than simply being told about a work of art, you explore it as a group. You form ideas about the piece naturally, informed by what you see in the artwork while also building on the interpretations of your peers. Tour guides help facilitate this fun way to explore the exhibitions and galleries.

Interested in an in-depth tour of the CMA's collection or traveling exhibition? Schedule a docent led tour for your group. Guided tours are led by the museum's dedicated Docent Corp and are a great way to obtain a better understanding of the museum's exhibitions.
Schedule a date to view the Museum's galleries at your own pace. Informative text panels in the galleries will enhance your experience.
Make your reservation early! We ask that all groups of 10 or more schedule their visit through the museum's Group Tour Manager, even if not requesting a guided tour, to assure the best visit possible. The Group Tour Manager can advise you on the best days and times to avoid peak hours. Please call 803-343-2163 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The CMA is undergoing extensive renovations to provide more galleries, more studios, more spaces for programs, and a new entrance on Main Street. To protect the art from construction, the upstairs collection galleries are closed through late 2018. In the meantime, we will remain open throughout the entire process with a full schedule of exhibitions and programs on the first floor. Have questions? Give us a call at 803-799-2810.
