Guided tours of the Museum's Main Gallery and changing exhibits are available to adult groups and student groups from pre-school age through college, after school programs, day cares, organizations, and families. General tours, providing an introduction to the Gallery, take about an hour. Specialty tours, which are planned with group leaders, vary in length from 45 minutes to three hours. They may include focusing on a particular topic with enrichment activities, games, or supplementary presentations.
Any museum visit can be greatly enhanced by doing some pre- and post- visit projects, as well as working with museum staff to expand the learning experience from what students have already studied. Ask Museum Educator Danielle Robbins for Student Response Items to use before, during, or after a visit. Students are encouraged to think creatively: giving direction to young minds as a compass to early explorers. Contact Danielle by email
