Exhibit Tours

Docents point out important details in the exhibits
"Yesterday my wife and I toured ASM with our tour guide. She was simply marvelous! Her depth of knowledge, her ability to present, her enthusiasm were all at the highest level. She is an extraordinary asset to the museum, and greatly enriched our experience there."

Drop-in Docent-guided Tours of the Exhibits

Tour ASM's exhibits with a docent guide. ASM docents are generally on the floor October 1 through April 30, Monday through Friday from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., and on Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Docent-guided tours are free with museum admission and available to visitors on a first-come-first-served basis. Ask at the admission desk about docent availability.

Although aimed toward adults, all ages are welcome. We ask for groups of 8 or fewer.
