Self-Directed Group Visit

This option is great for groups looking for a more casual visit. Our friendly staff will greet your group upon arrival and orient you to our gallery spaces. After that, you are invited to explore our exhibitions at your own pace. It’s also a good fit for post-secondary educators who want to shape their own lesson in a gallery setting.

Group Size: 8 or more people
Cost: Free; donations appreciated

Guided Exhibition Tour

Want to take a deeper dive? In a private 45-minute exhibition tour, a tour guide will greet your group and walk through one or more of our exhibitions, offering insights into the exhibition’s themes and details about the works on display. Your group is welcome to continue exploring the gallery at your own pace following the tour. We will work with you in advance to create an experience that matches your group’s specific needs and interests.

Group Size: 5 to 30 people

Cost: $5 per person (paid on the day of your tour with cash, cheque, debit, VISA or MasterCard); no cost for secondary or post-secondary classrooms.

Guided Exhibition Tour + Art Activity

Following a guided exhibition tour (45 minutes), your group will head to the studio for a hands-on activity (45-60 minutes). You will be invited in advance to select your activity from a menu of three mini-lessons. All materials are included.

Group Size: 10 to 20 people
Cost: $20 per active participant*
