Thank you for your interest in a self-guided tour of the Crow Collection of Asian Art.

*PLEASE review the information below before bringing your group to the museum.*

Currently, the museum is undergoing renovations and is unable to accommodate GUIDED tours and groups larger than 30 students due to our reduced footprint during construction. We apologize for any inconvenience. The museum remains free and open to the public and will accept drop-in self-guided tours on a “first come-first serve” basis. To check availability and reserve 30 minutes for a self-guided tour, email

Please note, only the first floor with two exhibitions is currently open and there is a limited capacity for large groups. Therefore Self-guided tours will be limited to rotations of up to 30 students split into groups of 15 in each gallery. At least one chaperone is required for every 15 students.

In 2016 & 2017 the Artist Residency Program gave local high school students the opportunity to learn and create with a contemporary artist at the Museum during Spring Break. Through the program, students explored Asia through works of art on view at the Crow Collection, learned new techniques and new ways of thinking from a practicing artist, and presented their work professionally at the Crow Collection.
