Tours and Outreach

In the interest of the health and welfare of our community, the Museum is currently closed to the public. Please visit our Public Health page for closure updates.

NOTE: In-person Museum Tours and ArtReach are currently not available. Explore virtual resources for K12 and university students and educators.

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.
