Planning a trip for ten people or more? Book a self-guided group visit for a calm and enjoyable experience for you and your guests. Self-guided visits are an opportunity for groups to cultivate deeper connections with art.
Groups are encouraged to catch the Art Team’s pop-up talks about the collection and Barnes history and use Barnes Focus—our free mobile guide to the galleries. Both are great ways to explore the collection and learn something new!
Reservations are required, and visitor capacity is limited. Email us for pricing and more information.
Acquaint your group with the Barnes guidelines before you enter.
Enjoy a visit to the Barnes without leaving home! Custom virtual tours are now available. Email us to reserve a date and time and choose a theme. Invite your friends to this an interactive 60-minute program.
For our international groups, we supply information sheets and guidelines in French, German, Spanish, Russian, Japanese, Korean, and Mandarin. To request one, email us. Tour operators must register before requesting translated materials.
