One of the best things about this museum is the selection of tours available to take, including such classics as the Daily Guided Tour, Art in the Afternoon, Stroller Tours, Gallery Tours, School Tours, Adult Tours, and CMAtennial Tours. Our favorites? The Art in the Afternoon, geared toward those with Alzheimer’s, aiming to lift spirits, engage minds, and provide a great social interaction, as well as the Daily Guided Tour, giving any guest a new perspective and great storytelling on the art. Depending on your time of visit you may be here during a special event, lecture, film screening, or live performance. You will most likely work up an appetite if you stay here long enough to see everything, so save plenty of time to head over to Provenance before you go, the fancy and fresh French bistro seating 78 for brunch, lunch, and dinner comfortably.
