The Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts offers guided tours that take visitors through the Center presenting a historic overview of its development and highlighting its architectural accomplishments, upcoming performances and volunteer opportunities.
Private tours of the Kauffman Center’s front of house led by a knowledgeable guide can be requested through the form below. Tours are approximately 60 minutes in length, are available with advance reservations, and are dependent on the Center’s active rehearsal and performance schedule.
Children’s Tours provide an in-depth look at the facility’s architectural highlights, and students are given the opportunity to explore the Kauffman Center’s performance spaces. Participants will learn about the Kauffman Center’s history and will take part in a discussion about the artistic details throughout the facility.
Children’s Tours are designed for ages 7-13, and last approximately 45 minutes. Children’s Tours are available for a $100 flat fee for groups of up to 60 students, and payment in full must be made in advance. Teachers who are interested in bringing high school student groups to see the facility are invited to book a traditional private group tour.
Until further notice, we are unable to accept tour requests. Please check back at a later date for availability. Thank you for your understanding.
The Kauffman Center generally maintains public access hours on Fridays from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. during which visitors may explore Brandmeyer Great Hall at their leisure. Occasionally performance, concert or event set-up does not allow us to offer this experience or visits may be limited to Brandmeyer Great Hall. Please be sure to check the Kauffman Center website prior to your visit for more information.
Until further notice, Public Access Hours are currently unavailable. Please check back at a later date for availability. Thank you for your understanding.

Residents and visitors alike are encouraged to participate in a Kauffman Center tour, however, please note that tours must be scheduled around the performances and work calls of the technicians, artists, and administrators who produce our amazing events. Every tour will strive to give attendees a full experience; however, due to our active performance schedule, we cannot guarantee that every tour will have the opportunity to view Muriel Kauffman Theatre or Helzberg Hall. Please note, tours will not include access to backstage areas. Tours will last approximately 60 minutes.
