Free tours led by Museum student educators can be tailored to the interests of student clubs, fraternities and sororities, and groups from residence halls. We also offer a general tour that provides an overview of the Museum, our permanent collections, and current exhibitions.

All tours are 45 minutes; we request a minimum of 5 students and a maximum of 15 per group. Two weeks’ notice is required to get on our schedule.

Student Projects

Student projects involving photography or film/video inside the Museum may be allowed with advance approval at least one week before the requested start of the project. Museum staff members will meet or communicate with the student to discuss the project and consider potential risk to works of art or people, scheduling conflicts, additional security costs, and any special circumstances. If approved, an appropriate fee will be determined based on the number of hours, time during the day, staff time, and other considerations.

Contact Holly Smith to begin your request.
