Group Tours

Scheduled, docent-guided tours are consistently offered at the PoCo Muse and are tailored to the age group and interests of the participants.

  • Tours given during regular hours (10a-5p, Wednesday through Saturday) are free of charge, but must be scheduled in advance. 

  • A general tour lasts about 45 minutes to an hour, travels through all of the exhibits, and details the history of the building as well as the featured exhibit on display.

  • Evening and specialty tours can also be arranged, but are subject to a different rate.

If you are a group leader who would like to plan a tour, please submit a Tour Request Form below.
