Guided group tours last approximately one hour and explore the museum’s permanent collection and special exhibitions through interactive discussions and activities. Artist educators work closely with teachers and group leaders prior to their museum visit to craft an engaging gallery experience examining Warhol’s art, life, and legacy and relevant social and cultural issues. Tours can be adapted to meet the specific learning needs and goals of each group.
