The Aldrich conducts group tours for a variety of audiences, including adults, seniors, clubs, and schools. Tours can take many forms—a traditional gallery talk, an open–ended discussion, or creative drawing and writing activities. We are dedicated to making connections between contemporary art and the lives of our visitors. Our docents are trained to encourage the visitor to feel comfortable looking at and engaging with contemporary art. We pride ourselves on custom–tailoring each tour to the individual needs of our visitors. Group visits to The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum are available Tuesday through Friday, 9:15 am to 5 pm, with docent tours also available on weekends.
