Tours and Art Access

Peninsula Museum of Art invites the public to visit the Museum for tours of the five exhibition galleries and 30 working studios. Regular hours are Wednesday through Sunday from 11 to 5. Admission to the Museum is always free.

Tours for small groups may be arranged at other times by making a reservation for a docent ( Custom tours that include a short, hands-on art project for up to 15 children or adults can also be arranged. For a field trip of this nature, contact our Education Department at We are happy to tailor a museum experience to your needs.

PMA especially encourages elderly and mobility-challenged residents of the Greater Bay Area to set up a planned visit. Our Art Access docent-led tours are available during hours that the Museum is closed to the general public (Mondays and Tuesdays), in order to provide a less-crowded environment facilitating ease of movement and quiet contemplation. 

Sixteen of the Museum’s 30 studios are on the main floor; the other 14 are upstairs and can be toured by special arrangement (sorry, no elevator, but we do have ADA access).
