We have received rave reviews for these tours, led by experienced and inspirational SLAM docents. These specially designed tours focus on artworks which reflect a wide range of faith traditions and inspire questions and conversations among the tour leaders and participants. The hour and one half-long tour will depart from the Museum’s Information Center in Sculpture Hall in the Main Building at 3 pm. The tour is free, no reservations required.
In addition to drop-in tours, community groups are welcome to request Interfaith Tours for specific dates/times at slam.org/learn.
