Guided tours

We take an interactive approach to learning during Newport Art Museum guided tours. Visitors can explore the architecture of our historic buildings, learn about the social and historical context for art works, and gain insight into artists' motivation, messages and techniques.  We can also work with you to create a customized art experience that includes hands-on learning.  The Newport Art Museum tours are led by trained docents and experienced art educators. These interactive tours for groups of 10 to 50 people last between 45 and 60 minutes.

Reservations are required.  Please contact us two weeks before your visit.


Self-guided group visits

Groups of ten or more may tour the Newport Art Museum without a guide and receive a discounted rate on admission.  Reservations are required.  Please schedule your visit at least two weeks in advance to receive the discount.
