Tours and Group Visits

  • Public Tours

    The Skirball regularly schedules Public Tours for select exhibitions throughout the year. Visitors are encouraged to ask if Public Tours are being held on the day of their visit, which are available to anyone with a General Admission ticket as space allows. 

    Note: Public Tours are subject to cancellation.

  • Private Tours

    Enrich your visit with a private tour—Groups of 10 or more can book a private, docent-led tour of This Light of Ours: Activist Photographers of the Civil Rights Movement. Tours are available from November 17 through February 11. Availability is extremely limited, and dates will be booked on a first-come, first-served basis. Show details to learn more. 


    Tours are geared toward adults, seniors, and young people ages 13 and over. We are currently unable to facilitate tours for children 12 and under.

    The per-person fee for a private tour is $18.

    • Per-person fees for private tours apply to all members of your group, including Skirball Members.
    • All private tours must be booked and pre-paid, so be sure to plan ahead. All tour dates and times are subject to availability.
    • Private tours are conducted during regular Museum hours, when members of the public are welcome in the galleries. For information on booking a gallery for exclusive, after-hours use by your group, please email private-events@skirball.org.
