How to register for tours!

Our partnership with Modern Phoenix Week allows us to offer guests more tours from the people who know this material best. That also means not every tour is being coordinated by Docomomo US and guests will register from some (but not all) tours separately. Note that during the check out process, guests can register for Docomomo US organized tours. Registering then unlocks a password you can use to access the other ticketed events, which are reserved for you exclusively until February 14th. Guests can register for Docomomo US tours with this password (if you missed this section or wanted to decided later) after you have completed the registration process. Check your confirmation email for the password.
