There are three ways to book a tour at the Brooks Museum: by phone, 901.544.6215; by email,; or schedule one online, using the form below.

Guided Tours

All guided tours must be scheduled a minimum of two weeks in advance. Guided tours are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis and based on the availability of the docents and museum space. As a result, they cannot be guaranteed. You will receive a tour confirmation form when your tour is reserved.

Self-Guided Tours

Self-guided tours must be scheduled in advance and may be scheduled anytime during regular museum hours.

Free school tours generously sponsored by the Kemmons Wilson Family Foundation.

  • Guided tours for schools and community groups do not include a visit to Inside Art.

  • Teachers and group leaders can schedule time for their students to visit Inside Art following the completion of their guided tour and art-making activity.

  • Groups are asked to limit their time in Inside Art to 30 minutes or less.

  • Self-guided groups in Inside Art must be limited to 30 students or less, and must include 1 chaperone for every 10 students.

  • For groups of more than 30 students, group leaders should divide their students into two smaller groups.  One can visit Inside Art while the other visits the galleries using a gallery guide.

  • Gallery guides can be picked up at the Visitor Services Desk in the entry area of the museum.
