Tours and Outreach

Museum Tours

Free docent-led tours are available for groups of eight or more. Tours are customized to fit the age and needs of the group. The guided portion of a tour lasts approximately one hour and a ratio of 1 adult for every 10 children is required for K-12 tours. All groups should contact the Education Department at least three weeks prior to your visit so that the Museum can prepare for your group, whether you are taking a self-guided tour or a guided tour with a docent or curator.

To schedule a self-guided or guided tour, please complete the Tour Information Request Form or contact  Willa Ahlschwede, Assistant Curator, Education and Public Programs.

Join the Museum’s mailing list to stay up-to-date on upcoming exhibitions.

School Artreach

With our School Artreach program our educators bring the art museum experience to you. The lessons include inquiry-based looking strategies, critical thinking, and creativity. Each lesson involves an art-making project. To schedule an Artreach visit for your school, please complete the Artreach form. 

Public Art Tours

Walking tours of campus sculpture are offered once a month for most of the year. Reservations are required so please call the UA Visitors Center, 520-621-5130, to register.

If your group (of 8 or more people) is unable to attend the Wednesday tour, please contact Willa Ahlschwede to schedule a public art tour.
