The museum welcomes groups of all ages and offers organized exhibition tours.

To schedule a tour with your visit, contact Coordinator for Interpretation & Public Engagement Tom Friel at least a week in advance.

Public exhibition tours are given on the third Thursday and second Saturday of every month at 12pm. Tours of the on-site collection are given on the first Friday of every month at 12pm. Tours of Tulane’s collection of Tiffany stained-glass windows are given on the second Thursday of each month at noon.

Do you represent a school in Orleans and Jefferson Parish? Then we invite you to bring your students to explore the museum and enjoy a free tour and hands-on educational activities tailored to the current exhibition and their grade level! Reducing any and all barriers of entry to seeing and experiencing the art and stories on view is a critical part of the museum’s mission and we’re grateful to have dedicated partners who aid us in accomplishing that vision. Thanks to generous funding from the museum educational sponsor, The Helis Foundation, the Newcomb Art Museum is able to offer free tours with educational activities, transportation, and lunches to school classes in Orleans and Jefferson Parish. Past visits have come from art classes, social justice classes, civics and government classes, and included students in every grade – so whatever grade and subject matter you represent we would be thrilled to share our museum with your students! To learn more about this opportunity please reach out to the museum by emailing Tom Friel at or by calling 504.865.5361.
