With a group of 10 or more, visitors can sign up for a group tour, which must be booked six weeks in advance. Visitors also have the option to do self- guided tours in small groups or by themselves.

There are three floors of exhibits at the BMA. The Come Collection in the Contemporary Art exhibit is especially kid-friendly. There are interactive sections such as building your own artwork with magnets or clear blocks that contain everyday items. There are also books to inform children about the artwork through terminology that is on their reading levels.

Exhibits currently available are Contemporary Art, Modern Art, American Art, English Sporting Art, European Art, African Art and two special exhibitions.

Visitors can stop and eat at Gertrude’s, a restaurant conveniently located in the BMA for lunch or dinner. This cozy café overlooks the Sculpture Garden so visitors can still appreciate art while eating.
