During this time, we are only offering small guided tours of the permanent collection, changing exhibitions, and the Ocean Springs Community Center murals (when available).

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
