Request a Tour for Student Groups

All tours are always free for students and their chaperones!

We offer two types of tours:

  • Self-guided: This tour is for professors, teachers, and facilitators who want to lead their own groups through a museum experience. Reservations are required.
  • Guided: Discover the galleries with one of our Gallery Teachers, who utilize question-based teaching strategies to engage students in discussions about works of art.

To reserve either tour option, please complete this form or email us at least three weeks in advance of your desired date.

For best results, please complete this form using either Chrome or Safari.
