If there are 6 or more visitors in your group we request you book a tour in advance, to be certain we have guides to accommodate your group. We have a maximum of 18 per tour, and can accommodate up to 36, by splitting the group into two tours which begin in different areas of the museum.

Call 310-548-7509 to book your tour day and time. You will be asked to provide your name, the name of your group, your telephone number, the number in the tour, and the day and time you prefer. We will check the tour schedule and advise if this is available. If not, we will work with you to determine an acceptable alternative. The earlier you call to schedule, the more likely we will have your preferred day and time available.
