Information Desk

The Information Desk is the perfect place to begin your exploration. Staff will share details on special programs and upcoming tours. This is where to grab a museum brochure and map, or borrow a complimentary self-guided multimedia tour.


A range of tours is available to museum visitors. Many visitors start with the free, self-guided multimedia tour, which takes museum guests through highlights in the museum's collection. This tour is available in English, Cantonese, Mandarin, Korean, Spanish and French. Transcripts are available at the Information Desk. You can also download the multimedia guide from iTunes.

Go deeper with our special multimedia tour for the Yoga: The Art of Transformation exhibition.  Rent it at the museum's Information Desk for $5 per person, $4 for members.
