Teachers may lead their students through the galleries without an Art Institute docent. Teacher-led tours begin at 11:00 and run every half-hour until 4:00. Use the online Student Tour Application form to register for a teacher-led visit. Limit: 180 Students
Please note: Docent-led tours receive preference in scheduling tour times and gallery use. The total number of students in the museum is limited to ensure the best educational experience for everyone. Teacher-led groups must always yield to gallery tours conducted by Art Institute staff and docents.
