Galleries in Focus

Docents at the Fine Arts Museums help students to discover their ability to look at, think about and enjoy art. Working with small groups in the galleries, the docents encourage dialogue about the art, artists and the cultures represented in the collections. Tours are usually 45 minutes long, depending on the age of the group. Special exhibition tours are subject to availability.



Reservation requests must be made at least 8 weeks in advance of the visit.
