MAM offers opportunities to discover the cultural connections, diverse meanings, feelings, and associations that happen during looking closely at an original work of art. MAM offers free guided tours of its galleries to school groups, community organizations, and the general public when possible.
Your group is also welcome to tour the museum on your own. A self-guided tour means that there is no tour guide provided by the museum. If schedules allow, a Visitor Engagement/Security Officer may be able to support your group. If you are planning to bring more than 15 individuals, please email Cameron Decker, educator and outreach coordinator. As we are a small staff, we ask that larger groups give ample notice for more staff support.
Saturday ToursFree group tours, led by a MAM docent, are available to the public beginning June 11 through August 13. Stop by on Saturday afternoons at 1 PM for a one-hour tour of the museum. No registration is required.
Schools and Group Tours
Hour-long tours are led by trained docents or MAM staff. Group tours are limited to about 30 participants (three groups of 10). Teachers are encouraged to preview the exhibitions before bringing their classes. Pre-visit materials and information will be sent upon request. Two weeks' notice is requested for scheduling a tour. Please email Cameron or call the museum at 406-728-0447.
Please note: MAM strives to accommodate all your requests, but due to the high volume we sometimes don’t have enough staff and volunteer capacity to do so.
MAM is ADA accessible and has a wheelchair for public use.
