Gallery Guide discussing Edward Hopper’s Eleven A.M. in Hirshhorn Masterworks.

At the Hirshhorn we believe that modern and contemporary art demands a more active viewer. Our conversation-based tours are designed to facilitate visitor interaction with works of art and fit a wide range of audience needs and interests.

PUBLIC TOURS
Highlights Tours are offered daily at 12:30 pm and 3:30 pm. Tours last between 45–60 minutes.

To participate, meet a Gallery Guide at the Information Desk in the Lobby.

PRIVATE GROUP TOURS
To schedule a group tour of the Hirshhorn’s Permanent Collection or Special Exhibitions, please fill out the Tour Request at least one month in advance. If you have any questions about scheduling a tour for your group, please contact our Public Engagement Department at HMSGeducation@si.edu.

SELF-GUIDED TOURS
Self-guided tours are welcome. Please register your self-guided tour by filling out the Tour Request. For any additional questions about scheduling your tour, please contact the Public Engagement Department at HMSGeducation@si.edu.

CHAPERONE POLICY
To ensure student safety and the safety of artworks on display, chaperones must accompany all student groups at all times. Teachers and chaperones are responsible for their students’ behavior. We encourage accompanying adults to support the teacher’s goals for the museum visit and to model active listening.

Both guided and self-guided school groups require the following chaperone-to-student ratios:

  • Grades Pre K–2: 1 adult per 5 students
  • Grades 3–6: 1 adult per 10 students
  • Grades 7–12: 1 adult per 15 students
