tours & group visits

The Yellowstone Art Museum offers tours for schools, families, and educational organizations for students aged from preschool to adults. All tours are inquiry-based explorations of current exhibitions, based on Visual Thinking Strategies. The accompanying art lesson is connected to the exhibitions.
