School Tours

Give your students an artful experience. Bring your class to Mia.

All guided museum tours are in a virtual format from January to March 2022. We intend to offer in-person tours beginning in April. We will update the Tour Request Form when we are able to accept in-person tour requests.

All tours for preschool through grade 12 and university student groups are free. Tours last 45-60 minutes and engage your students in close looking and discussion.

Request a Tour

School tours for preschool through grade 12 and university student groups will begin virtually in January 2022. We have many virtual opportunities for engaging your students with Mia’s collection, including pre-recorded tours and self-guided virtual activities.

We offer a variety of tours. Learn more about our current tour offerings.

Self-Guided Groups

If you have a group of 10 or more people (including yourself), please call or email our Visitor Experience staff prior to your visit, at 612.870.3000 or visit@artsmia.org. If your group arrives at the museum without pre-registering, you will need to fill out a self-guided visit form before taking your group into the galleries.

Pre-recorded Tours

Pre-recorded virtual tours provide a way to connect with Mia’s collection when you are unable to visit the galleries in person. All of the videos invite learners to look closely and respond to questions, and some include drawing prompts to spur the imagination.
