Audio Tours

The Norton Simon Museum, in collaboration with Acoustiguide, has developed an award-winning audio tour that gives visitors a stimulating and engaging way to connect with the Norton Simon collections. Approximately 400 artworks are featured on the highlights tour in both English and Spanish, from works by such artists as Raphael, Rembrandt and Renoir to the stunning bronze sculpture of India and Southeast Asia. The Children's Tour-also in English and Spanish-offers lively commentary, engaging questions and even the occasional joke, touching on approximately 35 artworks.

There are two ways to experience the Museum's audio tour: when visiting the Museum, visitors can rent a headset for $3; or, online visitors can listen to the entire highlights tour in English on the Museum's website, where the tour is linked individually to each artwork. The online audio tour offerings are continually being updated; expect to soon find the Children's Tour and Spanish tours online.
