Led by our incredible Museum Guides, public tours at SFMOMA take visitors through the collection and special exhibitions. More of a guided conversation in the galleries than a traditional lecture, our interactive tours are full of surprising stories about artists, and fun facts about the museum and works on view. We encourage all visitors to share their ideas and engage with one another as we explore modern and contemporary art together. You will leave with new ideas about how to look at art and the world around you.

We offer two types of public tours here at SFMOMA. Daily Exhibition Tours are 45 minutes in length and focus on a single exhibition with multiple stops. Spotlight Tours are 20 minutes in length and focus on an individual artwork or artist.
