Tours and Groups
The Parrish Art Museum welcomes groups and hosts hundreds of tours each year. We encourage groups to explore our collection galleries or special exhibitions on a guided tour led by one of our docents, or on your own with a self-guided group tour. Guided tours last about one hour and can be tailored to meet the needs and interests of your group.
