Guided tours for school and youth groups are available on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Please note that tours will not be scheduled on the first Thursday of each month, BAMPFA’s Free First Thursdays, to avoid overcrowding.

We do not allow more than thirty students in any one gallery at one time; if there are more than thirty students in your group, please arrange to divide them into groups of less than thirty, each accompanied by a tour guide.

Admission for K-12 students and accompanying teachers and chaperones is free; the admission fee for adults who are part of the group, but don’t perform chaperoning duties, is $5 per person. Guided tours are led by UC Berkeley graduate students; there is a tour fee of $45 per group of thirty students.
