School Tours

Schedule a School Tour

We welcome all school-age learners. We invite you to request either a guided visit led by trained Museum educators and volunteers or a self-guided visit, which allows you to lead your own students through the Museum. 

Please note that reservations are required for all school groups visiting the Museum.

Tours are available on a first-come, first-served basis by appointment only. Guided-visit reservations can be made no less than three weeks in advance of the requested visit date, and self-guided-visit reservations can be made no less than two weeks in advance.
