Self-Guided Museum Visits

Self-guided visits may be arranged for Tuesday through Friday at 10 am, 11 am, 1 pm, or 2 pm.

This visit is self-guided, and will not be led by a Phillips educator. Before your self-guided visit, we recommend that you explore our educator resources to find strategies and lesson plans on arts integration. It may also be helpful to visit the Plan Your Visit page to see a map of the museum. You can see which works are on view in the Collection section of the website.

Guided Museum Visits

Guided visits may be arranged for Tuesday through Friday at 10:30 am or 11:30 am.

Guided visits are led by museum education professionals trained in object-based learning, visual arts, and arts integration. Visits should be scheduled one month in advance. The visits are customized tours based on classroom subjects integrated with the art in the Phillips’s collection. You will be contacted by your educator for any themes or subjects you want to explore in the galleries. Visits consist of close-looking at 3–4 works in the permanent collection.
