We are now offering school tours beginning September 2021. Please use the guided or self-guided forms below to request your tour date. To adhere to exhibition restrictions, only groups of fewer than 30 people may request docent-guided tours from September to November 9. 

The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth welcomes student groups FREE of charge for docent-guided and self-guided tours of the permanent collection, special exhibitions, and the architecture of the museum.  

Title 1 schools are eligible for reimbursement of up to $250 per tour. Funds will be reimbursed to the school after the tour has been completed and a tour evaluation has been received by the Modern. Reimbursement funds for school tours are made possible by a generous grant from the Walton Family Foundation and are available to Title 1 schools on a first-come, first-served basis to be used exclusively for direct costs related to substitute teachers and transportation to and from the Modern.
