Adult Group Visit Request Form

The Met welcomes all adult, university, tourism, community, and personal groups and invites you to request either a guided visit led by trained Museum educators and volunteers or a self-guided visit, which allows you to lead your own group through the Museum. Please note that advance reservations are required for all adult and student groups of ten or more, and for any third-party guided tours, regardless of size.

Guided-visit appointments can be made no less than three weeks in advance of the requested visit date, and self-guided-visit appointments can be made no less than one week in advance. A separate form must be submitted for each visit, and we will do our best to accommodate your request(s). However, due to high volume, your visit is not confirmed until you have received a confirmation letter by email from the Museum.
