We are pleased to share two tour platforms so that you can explore the Barry Art Museum’s collection from the safety and comfort of your home:

  • Multimedia Tour with Museum’s Artist Educators

We invite your group of 10 or more to join us on Zoom for a guided, 45-minute tour with the Museum’s Artist Educators. From the comfort of your screen, you can enjoy an up-close-and-personal view of the collection with our NEW multimedia tours. Join Artist’s/Educator’s Suzy Peterson & Kim McKinnis as they share stories and in-depth information about the works in the collection and the people behind the piece.

This tour is especially appropriate for school groups & recreation groups, but could also be a great option for something to do during virtual gatherings! See you online!
