Make sure you have completed everything on the "Checklist"
Students must disembark the buses on the south side of Centre Street (between Charles and Cathedral) only. For safety, buses are prohibited from stopping on Charles Street. An alternative unloading zone is located on the south side of the circle at the Washington Monument
All school groups must enter at the Charles Street entrance, unless other arrangements have been made with the museum in advance (see accessibility). Groups will be met by their docents upon entering the museum
Encourage parents to join your class for their museum experience as we require one chaperone for every 10 students on guided tours
Chaperones want to learn too, so please remind them to stay with the group at all times
In order to keep students and the art safe, please remind students to keep their hands to themselves
Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult at all times
Leave all of your food and drink at the door. We will provide bins for your storage needs
Only pencils may be used for writing and sketching in the galleries

If you would like to take pictures, please ask your docent for the best time to do so
Please silence or turn off cell phones while on guided tours
