Book a Tour

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.

Please note that the art studio component of our tours is on hiatus this fall due to a renovation project. We are still providing docent-led tours of our permanent collection. 

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.

Summer Tours

While schools are out for the summer, the Brooks is happy to accommodate a maximum of 40 students per visit. Self-guided tours are recommended in June, July, and August as we cannot guarantee that a tour guide will be available during summer months. Please note that art studios are only offered September-May when booking a guided student tour.  For questions or special requests, contact the education department at
