Self-Guided Visit Resources

Use our self-guided materials to enhance student learning during your visit. For elementary and secondary students.

Self-Guided Visit Cards

The cards were developed with guidance from our Teacher Advisory Board to be used while visiting the museum. We recommend printing the document double-sided, then cutting the pages into quarters. On each card, you will find information about a work of art in the museum’s collection and possible activities, which can be completed either in our galleries or in your classroom.

For elementary groups, we recommend that chaperones and teachers read the cards aloud and then discuss the art with their students.

For secondary groups, you may choose to distribute the cards to students so that they can discover more information about the artworks on their own.

For your convenience or for students studying a second language, the cards are also available in Spanish.

Remember, the museum changes often. Not all of the works on the cards will be on view when you visit.
