The SITE Guide Program is an innovative approach to guest services and museum education. Serving as guards to protect the artwork, the guides are also educators who have been trained to dialogue with visitors to SITE’s exhibitions, making the work more accessible to a wide range of people. Every hour the museum is open, SITE Guides are available to give tours and converse with visitors about the artwork on display.
Check out this video about the SITE Guide program:
Come to SITE for a tour and enjoy a dialogue with our Guides! Every hour the museum is open, SITE Guides are available to talk with visitors about the artwork. Tours are available by appointment and are free with museum admission. Entry fees are waived for scheduled school group tours. To schedule your tour online, click the button below.

Overview of our SITE Tour Policies:
Tour guidelines and fees — effective August 2018
50 is the maximum number of tour participants we can accommodate at one time. We request a minimum of one month advance notice for groups larger than 30 in order to schedule the additional staff needed to accommodate a tour of this size. We will need to secure five SITE Guides’ availability before confirming a tour of this size.
Tours must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance. The cutoff is three Mondays before the desired tour, as SITE Guide scheduling occurs two weeks in advance on Tuesdays. For example, a tour request for the week of August 29-Sep.02, 2018 should be submitted no later than Monday, August 13, 2018
No tours outside of open hours:
-Unless the group is willing to pay the additional $150 fee per tour group (max 50 people)
-And only if we are able to secure enough SITE Guides before confirming the tour
-If a group wants to pursue a tour outside of our hours, it is crucial that they begin the process at least a month in advance.
