How Can I Book a Tour?
Self Guided School Tours
Custom Self-Guided tours give you the ability to create a tour specifically for your class’s needs. You will have the opportunity to work with a Museum Educator to choose objects and help you craft questions that will encourage deeper looking and conversation. Custom Self-Guided tours occur when the Museum is open to the public, and school groups must be with a chaperone in the galleries. Please review museum guidelines prior coming to Crystal Bridges
How Can I Prepare My Students?
Crystal Bridges produced a short video that will help to prepare your students for their school visit. This video provides them with some insight to the history of Crystal Bridges, fun and informative facts, and museum etiquette 101. In addition, before your tour you will receive some pre/post-visit material specifically related to your tour topic. This material will include some introductory questions, images to familiarize your students, and post-visit lessons that demonstrate student learning
