Tours and Groups

The Parrish welcomes groups and hosts hundreds of public, private, school, and group tours each year. We encourage groups to visit the galleries for self-guided or docent-led tours in English or Spanish. Stop by the Museum Shop, or the Café for a snack or lunch, before or after your tour.

One docent can accommodate up to 20 people. Please book your tour at least 3 weeks in advance.
