Docent-Led Group Tours
Docents are volunteer educators who lead public tours of the Museum’s collection. Docent-led group tours are $12 per person, available to groups of 10 or more. Tours last 45-60 minutes and topics include highlights of the collection or special exhibition (additional admission may apply).



Historic Home Self-Guided Tour
A group consists of 10 or more people arriving at the Museum together to view the galleries without a tour guide. To ensure a positive visitor experience, self-guided groups are encouraged to disperse and view the Museum individually. Pricing $10.



School Groups
Guided by Taft Docents, tours for school groups use works of art in the Taft’s collection and exhibitions to create a forum for ideas, debate, and exchange.
