Tours

Come Tour and Stay for an Activity

We offer three basic touring options:

Tour Only ($3): Learn and explore the galleries with knowledgeable docents for an hour long tour.

Tour & Activity ($5): Extend your tour at the museum with a specially designed gallery inspired art activity (1hr and a half).

Self-Guided Tour (general admission prices): For groups who want to go through the museum at their own pace.

*All tours must be scheduled with at least 2 weeks notice. One adult chaperone free for every 10 students.

 

Docent Led Tours

Tours are approximately one hour in length. Students will be introduced to the Museum and several of the current exhibitions. Docents have been trained in all aspects of the collection and special exhibitions, visual thinking strategies, and teaching with original objects in a museum setting. Tours can be designed to accommodate special curriculum considerations at the request of the teacher. Please inform us with specific requests at the time of scheduling. (Students must be at least 4 years old for our guided tours.)

School Tour Size

Our minimum tour size must have at least 6 students. We accommodate most large size groups, groups of more than 20 will be divided up to make tour size manageable.  We ask that there be one adult chaperone from your school for every 10 students.

Cancellation

If you must cancel a scheduled tour, please call our office as soon as possible, so that we may inform the docent(s).
