Groups - Saint Louis Art Museum

Daily Tours of the Collection:
Free docent-led tours of our collection are available Tuesday through Sunday at 1:30 pm. Tours depart from the Information Center in Sculpture Hall and are approximately one hour long.

School and Group Tours:
School and Group Tours are free and may be led by a trained docent (if requested) or may be "self-guided" by the teacher or group leader. If docents are not available on the date(s) you request, you can reserve a self-guided tour for your group (afternoons preferred). Groups should include at least 15 and not more than 60 people; docent-led groups will be assigned one docent for every 15 to 20 people in the group. School groups should include adequate adult supervision: one adult per 10 children.

All groups, whether led by a Museum docent or self-guided by a teacher, must contact the Museum to arrange a tour. Please allow at least four weeks' advance notice. Groups without advance reservations cannot be assured that their preferred galleries or times will be available.

The Museum charges no admission fee for the collection. An admission fee is charged for featured exhibitions. A special student group rate (elementary through college) of $1 per student is available (reservations required at least 4 weeks in advance).

Tour Hours:
Tours may be scheduled for any time during open gallery hours. Tuesday–Sunday, 10:00 am–5:00 pm, and Friday, 10:00 am–9:00 pm. The galleries are closed Mondays and on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.
