School Tours and Lesson Plans

Tours of the Permanent Collection

The Biggs offers FREE tours to schools, youth groups, after-school programs, and camps. Our standard School Tours are 1-hour long and explore all the museum has to offer. If your students are interested in a specific topic or theme, staff can tailor your experience to better fit your lesson. Tours can be booked as in-person tours or virtual experience. Reservations are required for your in-person or virtual tour. Please make your school tour reservation by clicking HERE.

Add on to your school tour experience with a free accompany 45-minute art-making activity facilitated (in-person or virtually) by a member of the Biggs Education Team. All art-making activities are designed to help your students make cross-disciplinary connections with concepts learned during their tour.

A library of  classroom lesson plans and corresponding downloadable slideshows for teacher use can be viewed using the link below.

 Please note: school tours must be booked at least two weeks in advance.
