Docent guided tours are interactive, inquiry-based, and encourage discussion, close looking, and critical thinking. Students will be split into groups of 10-15, each with a docent guide.

Tour Option #2: Guided Museum Tour + Self-Guide Public Art

Extend your museum visit with a self-guided tour. Groups can divide in half and rotate between a guided museum tour and a self-guided public art exploration right outside the building.

After about 60 minutes, the groups switch places and complete the other activity.
