MAC Prime Time is a new program of experiential learning and social activities designed especially for older adults to inspire curiosity, creativity and engagement with other like-minded people.
Guided Prime Time Group Visits
The MAC offers Prime Time group visits on Tuesdays. Choose from morning or afternoon programs.
A Prime Time visit to the museum includes a guided visit of exhibits and a tour of historic Campbell House or a painting program facilitated by a museum educator. The morning program begins at 10:00 am and ends at 11:45 am and includes a Campbell House tour. The afternoon program begins at 12:00 pm, ends at 1:45 pm and includes a painting program.
Prime Time Guided Group Visits must have a minimum of 8 and a maximum of 30 participants. The cost is $20/per visitor (or a minimum fee of $160) and includes a gallery tour, one guided program, and a light lunch. Additional snacks and beverages are available for purchase in the Café MAC, which offers stunning city views. There’s also an opportunity to stroll the museum’s five-acre grounds which include sculptures, shaded grassy areas, flower beds, an amphitheater, a grand lawn, benches, and a nature trail.
