Guided Tours at Art Omi



Self-Guided Tour

The vast majority of our visitors experience Art Omi through a self-guided tour. Click here for Maps and Audio Guides to help inform and orient you during your visit. Please refrain from touching or climbing sculpture or pavilions; such behavior can harm the artwork, and the person climbing it.

Guided Tours

While self-guided and audio tours are how the majority of visitors experience Art Omi Sculpture & Architecture Park, those seeking a deeper understanding may inquire about booking a docent led tour. Art Omi offers guided tours for adults, school and educational groups, non-profit groups, and business or tourism groups, and is able to customize a tour to suit your particular interests. Guided tours can be scheduled any time of year, and on both weekends and weekdays.

Please note that requests for guided tours must be received at least two weeks in advance of desired tour date. Art Omi does not guarantee that tours can be arranged at any given time, and so we recommend providing as much advance notice as possible so that we can best accommodate your group.
