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

Due to demand, we are no longer accepting guided school tour (PreK-12) requests of the Permanent Collection or Art Adventure for Spring 2024. If you have submitted a request form for a guided tour, the Tour Office is working to process your submission. If you would still like to visit Mia please use the request form for a self-guided tour. Self-guided tours are subject to availability.

Before Your Visit

Mia is proud to offer social narratives designed for members of the neurodiverse community. You’ll find versions for guided school groups, families, and adults and teens. View the social narratives online or request a print copy at Mia’s Third Avenue entrance.

Learn about the experience of visiting Mia with your group through the videos below. Videos are available in English, Spanish, and Somali, and provide museum guidelines and expectations ahead of your visit.




Self-Guided Groups

If you have a group of 10 or more people (including yourself), please fill out our Self-Guided Group Registration Form or contact our Visitor Experience staff prior to your visit at 612.870.3000 or 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 tours provide a way to connect with Mia’s collection. All of the videos invite learners to look closely and respond to questions, and some include drawing prompts to spur the imagination.
