For Student Tours

Experiences in the museum are a great way for your students to use critical thinking skills and apply concepts learned in the classroom in a new context.

Docent-led museum tours emphasize close looking, discussion, critical and creative thinking by making connections with works of art. Want to lead your own experience in the museum? Teacher-led tours allow teachers to construct visits for their students. We offer a wide range of resources for those who wish to create their own student experiences. 

Use the Student Tour Application to apply for your museum visit. Find more information about tours using the links to the left.
