We offer two types of school tours by reservation: docent-guided and self-guided.
Docent-guided tours are available on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10 and 11 am. The maximum group size for docent-guided tours is 60 (including chaperones). Four docents are available for these tours, and each docent can lead a maximum of 15 students. The tours are approximately one hour in length.
Self-guided tours are available Tuesday through Friday. The maximum group size for self-guided tours is 60 (including chaperones). Self-guided tours may include the audio tour for students in grades 8 and above, upon prior request (audio tours not guaranteed).
School Tour Guidelines
The following student/chaperone ratios are required for all school tours: for kindergarten through 8th grade, one adult chaperone is needed for every five students; for 9th-12th grade, one adult chaperone is needed for every ten students. Chaperones must supervise the students at all times.
Groups larger than 60 students and adults will need to either schedule multiple visits, or divide the students into smaller groups that visit at separate times on one day (when time is available).
School tours booked at least three weeks in advance to receive free admission.
Docent-guided tours are not available from June to August. You may arrange a self-guided visit during normal business hours.
Tours should be not considered scheduled until a confirmation is received by phone or email. For more information on or to schedule a school tour, please email TJungerberg@nashersculpturecenter.org or call 214.242.5180.
