The Museum offers tours of the permanent collection, changing exhibitions, and the Ocean Springs Community Center murals (when available), in addition to an award-winning film about the life of Walter Anderson.

In addition to self-guided tours, visitors can request a trained docent as a guide. We encourage educators to collaborate with us to customize tour experiences, which we build around state standards and classroom priorities in art, science, language arts, and social studies.

To get started on a customized tour, contact Director of Education Tony DiFatta at
