Tours

Self-Guided Tours (free)

Our exhibitions have been designed to help you explore on your own. Feel free to come and learn at your own pace any time the Museum is open.

Activity Backpacks are available for families with young children and can be checked out in the front office. These backpacks contain activities that will help you engage your children in ways that encourage learning and fun in the galleries!

Activity Patch Worksheets are a great way to learn about our main exhibition. The worksheets are available at the entrance to exhibitions and can also be downloaded in the Printouts tab to the left. These activity patches work great for scouting groups visiting the museum, but are also available for anyone who would like to complete the worksheet and earn a patch.

The Reading Nook contains a variety of books related to our current exhibitions. The books offer further insight into cultural practices and traditions specific for the exhibition.

Each exhibition is also designed with many hands on learning activities for all ages.

Docent-led Tours (fee required)

The Museum offers two types of Docent-led tours: Gallery Tours and Activity Tours. Both of these docent-led tours must be scheduled at least one week in advance. Tours are usually 45 minutes long, but can be adapted to individual needs.

Docents provide personalized experiences and additional insights into the exhibitions, regardless of group size. As you plan your visit, keep in mind that the Museum can accommodate a maximum of 50 visitors at a time.

To schedule a tour or request further information, please contact the MPC Education Office at (801) 422-0022 or mpc_programs@byu.edu. Please refer to the pricing chart below for our tour fee information.
