Tours are as interactive as the group would like, addressing the permanent collections as well as any special exhibitions on view. Guided tours are welcome during public hours and should be reserved in advance. We offer special guided tours for non- or low-sighted individuals at both the museum and the Pappajohn Sculpture Park.
To ensure we can accommodate your group, we ask that you submit your tour request at least three weeks in advance of your preferred date.
