EDUCATION Visit the Museum: Grades K-8


Come explore the exhibitions!

Our dynamic museum educators bring the artwork to life as students make observations, question what they see, and use their imaginations.

Classes participate in multi-sensory activities in the galleries designed to reach a broad range of learners. A hands-on project reinforces key concepts and provides students with the opportunity to express their creativity.
