The Amistad Research Center is primarily a research institution and not a museum facility. However, the Center welcomes groups interested in touring the Reading Room and Exhibition Gallery. Tours are free, but reservations are required for all visiting groups. To schedule a tour contact the Reference Desk at 504-862-3222. When scheduling your tour, please indicate your need for any assistance for individuals with disabilities. Tours are usually 30-45 minutes
Guided tours are available during our regular hours. However, due to staff constraints and out of respect for researchers, all tours must be scheduled in advance, preferably with at least two weeks' notice. Scheduling tours early is highly recommended. Please schedule adequate travel and parking time for visits. Tour groups over 30 minutes late may not be accommodated.
The Amistad Research Center can accommodate up to (but no more than) 25 people during a visit. Please be aware that we do not have seating for 25 people in our Reading Room. If there are any members of your group who cannot stand for a 15-minute period, let the Center know ahead of time how many people will need chairs. If you have a large group and live in the New Orleans area, please contact the reference desk about the possibility of a staff member coming out to speak to your group. This option is contingent upon staff coverage at the Center.
