K–12 Self-Guided Visits

School groups may arrange to visit without a guide. Because most galleries are small, access may be limited; groups with mnore than 15 students should separate into smaller groups of no more than 15 students per adult chaperone.  

Self-guided visits must be made at least two weeks in advance.
