The University of Arizona Alfie Norville Gem & Mineral Museum is happy to offer guided tours. Guided tours are an immersive experience narrated by docents. 

If you are interested in booking a museum tour, complete the Guided Tour form and we will get back to you with more details.  

What to know before booking your tour:

  • Guided tours range from 1-2 hours based off group’s level of interest.

  • Group rates are available for groups of 10 or more.

  • Due to the layout of the museum, the ideal capacity for a traditional guided tour is 25 people. Groups of 30+ people will receive additional formatting options to accommodate group size.

  • Best and easiest parking is in the El Presidio Garage located at 165 W Alameda St.


Since there are three large galleries, there is a wealth of information to take in on your first visit or first tour. The admission pass you will still receive at check-in will be valid until the museum closes at 4pm that day. We recommend touring in the morning, visiting one of the many spots around the Historic Courthouse for lunch, and returning in the afternoon for a full experience.
