Thank you for your interest in the Grey Art Museum at New York University. Reservations must be made at least two weeks in advance for all group visits by 10 or more people.

Groups that arrive at the Grey without a reservation may be denied entry to the gallery or otherwise asked to leave.

Special arrangements must be made in advance for groups larger than 25, which may include breaking into smaller groups and staggering arrival times.

Groups cannot join other tours led by Grey Museum Guides.


Groups may request a Grey Museum Guide tour. Our standard tours last 40 minutes; a customized tour may be available upon request. Guided groups of 10 to 25 for any type of group (K–12, adult, corporate, college/university, senior center etc.), are welcome to schedule a tour. The maximum group per tour is 25 people. Special arrangements may be available for larger groups. K–12 groups require at least one chaperone for every 5 students (or fewer).


Please make every attempt to arrive at the time of your reservation. Groups arriving before 11:00 am must wait outdoors until the building entrance opens. Please keep this in mind when planning your trip, especially in the case of inclement weather.

  • Group tours are free of charge for NYU students, faculty, and staff; other matriculated college students; and New York City K-12 school groups.
  • Admission for other groups larger than 10 is $5.00 per person, payable to the front desk attendant upon arrival—in the form of one cash payment, one check, or by credit card. The Grey will not accept individual payments from people in the group.
  • If you have any questions regarding admission, please put a note in the comments section of the group scheduling request.
  • If your group arrives late for a tour, you may receive a shorter tour ending at the original time.
