Teacher-Led Tours

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.

Here are some things you can do to prepare yourself and your students for a field trip:

  • View the orientation videos (below) on your own and with your students.
  • Use the Educator Resource Finder or visit the Crown Educator Resource Center to find ideas about using works of art in the classroom.
  • Review the museum rules and expectations for students and chaperones.
  • Review a museum floor plan and plan your museum itinerary.
  • Browse the Collections page of the museum’s website.
