Morning and Evening Tours Start in July
Deserts are hot in the summertime. Daily temperatures reach 100 degrees Fahrenheit here at Chinati in the high Chihuahuan Desert, where daylight hours stretch from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Corresponding with the climate, Chinati will introduce new summer hours starting in July. Morning and evening tours are designed to avoid being out during the hottest hours of the day—and to encourage siesta time in Marfa. Two guided tours, a North Tour and a South Tour, are available and last approximately 3 hours each. It is possible to see the full collection by taking one tour in the morning and the other tour in the evening. Chinati also offers Outdoor Viewing of Donald Judd’s untitled works in concrete.
