Group visits and tours

Get the most out of your visit to the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery | Len Lye Centre with a personal guided tour of the buildings, the history and stories, and the current exhibitions.

The Gallery's past and present come alive when its stories are told - our passionate and experienced team are available to share these stories and make your visit special. 

We offer two tour options - a Group Tour of the current exhibitions and installations, with a comprehensive background in the Gallery's transformation from pioneering cinema to acclaimed contemporary art museum.

At the other end of the spectrum are bespoke Curator Tours which can provide more detailed insight into specific exhibitions. Read more about each tour below. 

Beyond these packages, we are more than happy to create a custom experience that meets your needs - whether that's a private dinner or film screening, a family art class, or a product or fashion launch. Similarly we can package tours with other items and experiences such as an exhibition catalogue, souvenir t-shirt, lunch at our fabulous Monica’s Eatery, or a full multi-day accommodation and experience package.
