Museum Tours and Visits

General Admission is free

We are delighted that you want to visit the African American Museum of Southern Arizona. The museum is available for self-guided visits and AAMSAZ guided tours. 

  • Self-guided visit: You lead your group independently; please check-in when you arrive. An AAMSAZ volunteer will greet your group and go over museum guidelines as needed. Groups under 18 years of age must have 1 adult per every 10 youth.
  • Guided tour: We offer a 40–50 minute interactive tour with an AAMSAZ educator. Groups under 18 years of age must have 1 adult per every 10 youth.
  • NOTE: PreK–12th grade groups of 30+ students MUST be guided by an AAMSAZ volunteer in the museum.

All visitors—even those not requesting a guided tour—should fill out the request form below or contact us at least two weeks before the requested date so that we can prepare for your visit.

You will receive a confirmation and further details about your visit via the email address you provide. 

We host many visitors throughout the week. Having advance reservations helps to avoid overcrowding and ensures safer accommodations for visitors and staff.

Guided tours are led by AAMSAZ volunteers with educational opportunities that can be customized to fit the ages and interests of the group. Guided tours take approximately 40-50 minutes. A ratio of 1 adult for every 10 children is required for PreK-12 student tours.
