Group Tours

The Ava Gardner Museum invites your group to visit the museum today!  From civic clubs to church groups, bus tours to family reunions, we love hosting groups of all sizes. 

Your group’s visit begins with a tour of the Ava Gardner Museum. Admission tickets include a 15-minute biography shown in the Museum’s theatre and more than 5,000 sq. ft of exhibit space. Current exhibits include a unique selection of Ava’s costumes, rare movie posters, awards, Ava’s personal items, photographs, and fine artwork.

For group tours, admission is $9 per person and each group will receive one free admission for guide and/or driver per each 10 paid admissions.

Looking for a more unique experience?  The Museum also offers a package for groups:


The Heritage Tour package is for 10 people or more and includes admission to the Ava Gardner Museum and a heritage tour of points of interest in Ava’s hometown.

After touring the Museum, your group will return to the group’s van, shuttle, or bus with one of our knowledgeable guides. Visitors will be shown the important places in Ava's life, including Ava's birthplace, the Teacherage where she grew up, and her gravesite in Sunset Memorial Park.

The entire cost of this package is $12.00 per person
