Curatorial Walkthroughs

Get a behind-the-scenes look at UMOCA’s exhibition concepts with our twice monthly curatorial walkthrough series. Each walkthrough provides an academic slant to your experience of contemporary artworks as they relate to one another in a presentation as a whole.

At the conclusion of the gallery walk, enjoy the opportunity to informally engage the curator with your questions, personal responses and meaningful discussions.

Stroller Tours

These monthly tours offer parents, guardians and caregivers an opportunity to experience the museum’s current exhibits with their young children in tow. Beginning before the doors open to the public, Stroller Tours are designed to ease concerns associated with talkative children and crying babies by providing an exclusive time for museum exploration and tailored, grown-up discussions free of pressure. Please remember, touching the art is not allowed. We recommend toddlers remain in their strollers.  Please RSVP to
