Self-Guided Visits

High school classes have the option of exploring the galleries in a self-guided fashion. Self-guided visits begin with a brief introduction and orientation by our education staff and are then entirely facilitated by adult school leaders.

Please note: Reservation policies and chaperone-ratio policies DO apply to all self-guided visits. Each gallery you wish to explore must be reserved, and 1 adult is required for every 10 students.

Self-guided visits work best when:

  • groups are small 
  • teachers have prepared activities (scavenger hunts are strongly discouraged)
  • teachers have communicated their goals to their students

If you're 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.

Please read our K-12 Policies before booking a self-guided visit.

Dates Available: Year round

Grade Level: 9th–12th

Minimum Number of Students: No minimum

Maximum Number of Students: Depends on the galleries reserved

Galleries Visited: Self-guided visits are available in all of our continuing and special exhibitions, provided no other group has booked that space for a guided program.
