Docent Tours

Museum Tours

Museum tours have been temporarily suspended due to SARS-COV-19.

Tours of the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture are an excellent introduction to the complexity and diversity of the Native American cultures of the Southwest.

FREE walk-in docent-led tours of the museum's exhibitions are offered daily:  usually at 10:30am, 1pm, and 3pm. Sometimes we don't have a volunteer docent available, so please call 505-476-1269 during museum hours to confirm the walk-in tours offered each day, or 505-476-1250 after hours for recorded general museum information.

Group Tours

Tour groups can also benefit from interaction with the museum's energetic and knowledgeable docents, who are trained to offer challenging, interactive tours of Here, Now & Always, The Buchsbaum Gallery of Southwestern Pottery, and the museum's regularly changing exhibits. Free docent-led tours are available to pre-registered groups of any age or interest.

  • To schedule an adult group (including college group) visit to the museum, please call 505/476-1271 or e-mail

Pre-registered school groups are admitted free to the museum and both docent-led and self-guided tours of our exhibitions provide opportunities for discussion, discovery, and inspiration. All schools participating in the free Living Traditions Education Program receive a guided tour along with their hands-on session in the museum's classroom. 

  • To schedule a school group visit to the museum, please contact the school tours line at 505/ 476-1271 or e-mail
