A Helpful How-To: Lecture and Tour Tickets

It’s easy to get Friends lecture and tour tickets – here’s how!

Each month free tickets are available for lectures presented by the Friends of the Institute. For members of the Friends, tickets are available on the 15th of the month previous to the lecture and to the general public, tickets are available on the 17th of the month. Reserve your tickets by clicking here or by calling 612.870.6323.

Friends Only pre-lecture tours are also held throughout the season. You may request the pre-lecture tour when you register for Friends Lectures or, if you are registering on-line, be sure to click the Friends Pre-Lecture Tour box. Your lecture ticket will then indicate both lecture and tour attendance. The same procedure applies to all lectures and all pre-lecture tours.

Tours begin promptly at 10AM and you are asked to arrive early at Mia in the Third Avenue Lobby under the Chihuly Sun. Tour participants will receive reserved seating for the lecture at the end of the tour. Please be courteous and call if you must cancel your tour. You may cancel by calling 612.870.6323.
