Requested Dates

List three possible dates and times in order of preference (tours are 60-minutes long). Please note that tours are only conducted during open hours, and the Museum is CLOSED on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Will you be arriving by bus?
For example, is this your group's first time to the Museum? Is there anything you would like to share with your educator(s) leading your tour?

Boxed Lunches

The Museum does not allow outside food on the premises, but we do have a Garden Cafe in the Museum's celebrated Sculpture Garden. The Garden Cafe can serve box lunches for 20–60 guests for a private tour. To make arrangements for group lunches, please contact the Patina Restaurant Group at (626) 844-6970 2 weeks prior to your visit to select from a variety of boxed meals
