Self-Guided Visits

High school classes have the option of exploring the galleries in a self-guided fashion. Self-guided visits include a brief introduction and orientation by our education staff, and are then entirely facilitated by the adult, school leaders. Reservation policies and chaperone ratio policies do apply to all self-guided visits. Each gallery you wish to explore must be reserved. 1 adult is required for every 10 students.

Self-guided visits work best when:

  • groups are small 
  • teachers have prepared activities 
  • teachers have communicated their goals with the students

*Please note: if you are reserving a guided Gallery + Classroom program and you would like your group to explore other galleries before or after your program, you must reserve those galleries for a self-guided visit.

Before booking a self-guided visit, please read our K-12 Policies
