Whether you’re looking for a tour or planning a field trip, the OSU Museum of Art has an experience that will fit your needs.
We offer a variety of tours and will work with you to design an experience that fits your needs. Please review the tour options below and choose the one that best fits your needs. Complete and submit a tour form at least two weeks before your intended visit. Our staff will contact you to confirm and plan the details of the tour. We also offer virtual classroom visits that include tours and art-making tutorials.
- K-12 Tours
Our PreK-12 inquiry-based tour program encourages students of all abilities to engage with art and each other by looking deeply and thinking creatively and critically (30 student limit). We also offer tours followed by art making workshops based on our exhibitions in partnership with the Prairie Arts Center (60 student limit, may require two-day sessions, only available Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 - 11 a.m.).
- University Tours
The OSU Museum of Art offers a wide range of opportunities for university faculty and students to engage with exhibitions and programs including curator-led tours tailored to specific courses, presentations, visiting artist programs, or even access to the permanent collection located in the vault.
- Private/Self-Guided Tours
Self-guided tours and private tours are limited to 20 visitors at a time.
- Home School Tours
Just like our K-12 tours, homeschool groups can expect tours that encourage students of all abilities to engage with art and each other by looking deeply and thinking creatively and critically. Students make personal and curricular connections through discussion, writing, and hands-on activities. Because many homeschool groups include students of multiple ages, we will work closely with the parents to insure the tour is appropriate for all ages.
