Self Guided Visits

HOW TO SCHEDULE A VISIT

  • CALL TO SCHEDULE:
    Reservations are necessary and they must be scheduled in advance. Two weeks’ notice is required; however, we suggest you schedule early, as Spring dates often fill in the Fall. Beginning August 18, 2014, group leaders can contact BAM at 345-8330 ext. 36 to make a reservation for their group only. Group leaders, parents, and volunteers may not make reservations for colleagues, friends, or other groups. The week of August 18 – August 22, group leaders may call between the hours of 8:00 a.m. to noon and 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Beginning September 2, 2014, and continuing until full, group leaders may call during BAM’s administrative hours. Rates and availability vary, please call for more information.
  • REVIEW YOUR CONFIRMATION:
    An email confirmation will be sent to you upon scheduling your visit. When you receive the confirmation, please carefully review the dates, times and policies.* A BAM representative will call you to confirm your visit two weeks prior to your tour.
  • *BAM’s Chaperon Policy: Up to four adult chaperons, including the teacher, are included for free. Additional adults pay regular admission and are not considered part of the touring group. A self-guided visit must include one chaperon per 10 students. Chaperons are responsible for supervising students at all times.
  • SCHEDULE EARLY AND LET US KNOW IF YOU NEED TO CANCEL:
    BAM serves as many groups as possible through pre-scheduled visits. For the safety of visitors and artwork, BAM has a limited number of group visits available each day. Please call at least two weeks in advance to schedule your visit. Cancellations with less than two weeks notice  will be charged the full visit fee.
  • ASK QUESTIONS:
    If you have questions about which program works best for your group, please call us at 345-8330, ext. 36. BAM’s Education Department will work with you to find the best option for you visit.

Teachers can make special arrangements with the Education Department to visit BAM for a self-guided visit. Self-guided visits are limited to a maximum of 30 students per hour and typically scheduled between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m., depending on space availability. Self-guided visits must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance to be eligible for a visit. Up to 4 adult chaperons are admitted for free with a self-guided visit. Additional adults pay regular admission. One adult chaperon per 10 students is required. Chaperons must stay with students at all times.
