BEAM TOUR

Patrons with disabilities that prevent them from visiting in person or educators and schools that want a unique museum tour can now experience the Museum remotely with the use of a computer. The Beam, which the Museum recently purchased thanks to the generous support of the Thursday Club, is a smart telepresence device that uses high-quality audiovisual equipment and a Wi-Fi connection to navigate through galleries by remote control. Now, just by a simple download of software and logging onto the internet, individuals can experience a docent tour of the galleries while located at their own computer. The San Diego Museum of Art is very excited to be one of the first Museums to provide this program.

Beam tours, accompanied by a docent, are available Mondays and Thursdays, 3:00-4:00 p.m. or 4:00-5:00 p.m. Tours are available in Spanish.  Two weeks notice is required for Beam tours & are based upon availability.

For more information, please email info@sdmart.org.

The Beam is generously sponsored by The Thursday Club.
