The Davis Museum at Wellesley College offers guided tours during open hours, Tuesday through Sunday from 11 AM to 5 PM. Our specially-trained Student Guides engage visitors with the Davis’s distinctive permanent collections and its special temporary exhibitions through dialogue-based experiences. Admission is free, and we welcome audiences from the Wellesley College campus and beyond. School groups are encouraged to plan visits to the Davis and to apply for our School Bus Subsidy, generously supported by the Palley Endowment Fund for Davis Museum Outreach Programs.
Tours are customized according to interest area. To schedule your visit or to request more information, please e-mail Public and Interpretive Programs Specialist Liz Gardner at email@example.com or call 781.283.3045. Reservations must be made two weeks in advance.
