Group Visits

Groups of 10 to 20 students are invited to schedule a visit to one of the Museum’s special exhibitions in our Gallery On the Slope as well as selected pop-up exhibitions in the community. Our inquiry-based group visits, led by volunteer docents or Museum staff, challenge students to hone their observation skills.

Group visits are free, with a suggested donation of $25 to help support our education programs and initiatives.
