A tour conclusion briefly sums up the purpose and theme of a tour. “Today we looked at art about animals from all over the world—all of them amazing. We discovered that no matter where you live, animals play an important part in the lives of humans.” People often enjoy reflecting on their favorite artworks; you might even consider asking one last question: “What was your favorite artwork we saw today?” or “What would you come back to see again?”

A conclusion also can encourage participants to return. Thank the group for visiting Mia and invite them back. Mention the activities available on Family Days as well as our monthly book and public tours. Give a tour participant a Tour Feedback Form, and mention that you are open to hearing comments and suggestions to further improve the visitor experience.
