Book a private, expert-led tour through one of your favorite museums — and let us tailor the experience to your unique interests. You’ll get to dive deeper and see objects that aren’t on exhibit. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime, hands-on museum experience.
Can’t choose just one of our museums to explore with your personal guide? Then choose several! You’ll have two hours to dip your toe into firearms and art history, or maybe walk through Buffalo Bill’s life and legends before encountering the Plains Indians cultures of the American West. Your interests, your experience!
You get your very own highly trained and personal guide to bring you and your family/ spouse/ friends through the museum(s) of your choice and have your questions answered as they come up. We center tours on what the visitors want to focus on, be they a single specific topic or a general overview of many topics. These are not scripted tours; they’re conversations!
Tour participants also gain access to artifacts and stories not on display to the general public, and you get to take home limited-edition souvenir swag only available to Exclusive Tour participants.
We work with visitors and offer preferential booking options to fit their schedules. Depending on Exclusive Tours Guide availability, tours are offered seven days a week and can take place before, during, or after normal operating hours.
We can host groups of up to 10 people (occasional exceptions permitted) or groups as small as a single individual on Exclusive Tours.
Yes! Depending on the Exclusive Tour experience you book, there is a hands-on section. If you’ve ever wanted to put on the white, cotton gloves and look like a curator for a bit, this is your chance!
Tours start at $85 for a single individual to take a private tour, with discounts available for parties of 2 or more.
The sooner the better! The summer season books up extremely quickly for the Exclusive Tours team; though, we accept walk-in/same day bookings if there is an available Exclusive Tours Guide.
Vault access is NOT included in Exclusive Tours. The hands-on component mentioned above takes place in a restricted area (badge access required) off limits to the public, but it does not take place in the vaults.
If you want to donate or loan objects to the Center of the West, please email [email protected] with information and images on the objects. Please note, curators deal with an extremely high volume of these types of inquiries.
Spots for summer fill up fast. Contact our Exclusive Tours Specialist today to book your tour.
