Field Trips

Returning in spring 2022.

Field trips led by museum docents are offered to K–12 and university school groups. These field trips will introduce students to a selection of artworks and encourage them to look, analyze, and share their responses to the art. To schedule a field trip, contact Laura Scheper, Interpretation and Volunteer Experiences Manager.

Many of our students have never been exposed to a museum. It was wonderful for the students to be a part of this engaging educational experience.

University visits

We encourage faculty to supplement their course content with an in-person or virtual visit to the museum. Our tour experiences are designed to enhance university student learning and research, while supporting course curriculum. Faculty may also encourage their students to visit the museum independently of class time to support their own curiosities. To schedule a university museum experience, contact Christopher Myers-Nunn, University Experiences Manager.
