Thank you so very much for bringing art to us! The exposure and conversations you provide the space for are truly amazing! I learn so much each time you come to visit.”

For Your Visit

To arrange for your program, to discuss whether any fees will apply, and to inquire about bus fee coverage, please begin by emailing Carol Hockett. Please include the theme you would like to request, along with three possible dates and times for your program.

Museum class tours last approximately one hour and are organized for groups of 10 to 25 students. Studio activities can be designed by request and allow us to incorporate creative, hands-on activities into Museum programs. Studio sessions can expand the visit to two hours.

The Johnson Museum offers programs to schools Tuesdays to Fridays between 10:00AM and 5:00PM. The calendar fills quickly. Space on the schedule is limited and tours are available on a first-come, first-served basis. It is suggested that you book at least one month in advance. If your scheduled tour/workshop is delayed or must be cancelled, please call the Museum at 607 255-6464. We appreciate at least 24 hours notice of cancellation.

Please have this information ready when you call or if you have to leave a message:

  • Name of contact person
  • Daytime phone (or home phone if it is difficult to reach you at school)
  • Type of program requested and possible dates/times for your program
  • School name, mailing address, and phone number
  • Group age, grade, and any special needs your class may have

Self-Guided Tours

Teachers are welcome to bring classes to the Museum on their own, with adequate chaperones. There is no charge for self-guided class visits but advance notice is appreciated to reserve a place in the schedule.
