Public tours

SJMA is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment to view art, and restricting large groups will help further this goal. We have temporarily cancelled group tours but invite you to watch exhibition and artist highlights made by SJMA docents and educators that you will find on gallery walls with QR codes.

Wheelchairs and strollers are available free of charge. Click here for complete information about Accessibility.
