Art | Connection | Wellness
Let The Phillips Collection provide you with a different kind of virtual experience—one where you can relax, have fun, and learn something new. These tours are more than just a passive exploration of the museum’s collection. They are designed to be interactive and are customized to the specific needs and interests of your group. Come connect with art, mindfulness, and people.
You may not be able to step inside the galleries, but that doesn’t mean we can’t give you a unique, immersive museum experience.
