Due to concerns over the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, all group tours are cancelled until further notice. We continue to assess the situation and will provide timely updates to cancellations and postponements. We thank you for your support of MIM and look forward to welcoming you for another group tour soon.

Whether you’re bringing a whole class of students or visiting with a group of 10 or more friends, one of our many tour options will enrich your experience at MIM. For groups of fewer than 10 people, scheduled Orientation Tours do not require reservations.

Orientation Tours

Included with general museum admission and free for members. Reservations are not required for this tour.

Join one of our museum guides on an Orientation Tour where you will see, hear, and travel the world through music. Guests can drop in for a 30–45 minute tour and see fascinating instruments on display in three of MIM’s major Geographic Galleries: Africa, Asia, and Latin America. This complements the self-guided experience.

Orientation Tours are currently offered:
Every Monday & Friday  |  2 p.m.
Every Saturday & Sunday  |  11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Tours are subject to museum guide availability.

Group Tours

Adult Group Tours

Available for groups ranging in size from 10 to 120 our guided tour offers an overview of the world’s music, focusing on cultures in each geographical region of the world. You will also have time to visit the galleries more extensively at your own pace before or after the tour. The self-guided tour allows groups to explore MIM galleries at their own pace. With easier check-in, groups can take time exploring the Geographic, Artist, Mechanical, and Experience Galleries.
