School programs at the Walters are aimed at deepening PreK-12 students’ relationships to themselves, their peers, and the world around them through creative exploration and by critically engaging multiple points of view. Our school tours are conversational. We encourage students to share and listen to a range of perspectives and questions about works of art.

The Walters is now offering both virtual and in-person tours of our collection. For group visits to the museum, opportunities for either docent-led or self-guided experiences are available. Complete the appropriate form below to begin the tour request process.

Tours are offered on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.
