Some tips:

  • Engage with your guide and ask questions, it not only makes the tour more interactive and enjoyable but also allows more room to learn.
  • The tour is not a race, take your time at the pieces you're interested in, let them soak in. More than quantity, focus on the quality of art you see.
  • Don't forget to discuss the art you observed with your partner; it's a nice way to understand their perspective, and it also fuels interesting discussions. Remember, art is subjective – there’s no right or wrong in it.
