Docent-Led Tours

SJIMA is now offering tours during regular museum hours. Led by an experienced docent, private tours offer an in-depth look at the museum’s exhibitions lending a rich conversation about the art and artists on view. Private tours are limited to 20 people per tour and can be customized to meet your group’s needs.
