Guided Tours

For each exhibition, the BDC hosts free guided exhibition tours for Bronx schools and community groups. 

Artists on view and curators will give hour-long walk-throughs to provide a firsthand understanding of the exhibition’s themes and allow visitors to engage in a one-on-one dialogue. The BDC develops query-based curricula aimed at cultivating critical thinking skills while promoting visual literacy. 

We are available to give hour-long guided tours Monday - Friday, 10AM-6PM. If you are interested in scheduling a tour, contact with the following information:

  • Your name, the name of your school or organization, address and phone number
