Members-Only Tours

A new perk of Kirkland Museum membership! Travel through time with one of our knowledgeable docents! Beginning Saturday, October 12, the Museum offers one-hour tours of the collections just for members every second Saturday of the month at 11:30am. These tours provide an exclusive chance to gain a deeper understanding of the art and objects in each gallery and the many Colorado connections in the Museum. Members may bring guests as allotted with their membership level and can sign up on the day of the tour at the Welcome Desk ahead of the tour start time. Spots are available on a first-come, first-served basis with no advanced reservations necessary.
