Book Club

Join the Book Club, a docent-led two-hour experience to understand the collection in new ways and make new friends. Books are selected to connect with the museum’s galleries and specific works of art. Read the book, discuss with fellow readers, then visit a gallery (or galleries) relevant to that book.

The Book Club meets on the last Saturday and Wednesday of the month from 1 to 3pm.

The tour is free with museum admission, and free for members.
