The Walters Art Museum offers in-person tours for PreK-12 school groups in the galleries, with opportunities for either docent-led or self-guided experiences. Registration for both is required. One chaperone per group of ten students is required for both docent-led and self-guided tours. We can accommodate groups of up to 80 students for all docent-led tours. If you have more than 80 students, we encourage you to sign up for a self-guided tour using the tour registration form.
Tours are FREE. A voluntary contribution of $7 per student will help us sustain educational programs for our communities. The Walters is pleased to offer a limited number of bus stipends for Title I schools throughout the state of Maryland, through the form of reimbursements for partial or full bus expenses.

In-person guided tours are 75 minutes long and are offered on Wednesdays at 10:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., and Fridays at 10:00 a.m. A minimum of ten students is necessary for a docent-led tour, with a maximum of 80 students.
Self-guided tours are offered at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesdays and Fridays, and between 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Our afternoon slot is flexible, and you can request your preferred time on our registration form.
