Museum Tours

SCHEDULE A TOUR

The Wiregrass Museum of Art’s guided tours are designed for students to experience original artworks, ask questions, discover new ideas, and build knowledge of their community. Tours are aligned with Alabama’s Department of Education Standards to make learning across the curriculum come alive! Led by our museum educator or a trained docent, guided tours of the museum bring to life our rich permanent collection and stellar special exhibitions.

Tours are subject to the relevant admission charges.

  • Museum tours are $3 per student.

  • Museum tours with an art lesson are $5.

  • Admission is free for one teacher or chaperone per 10 students. (All chaperones must be 21 years of age.)

  • Additional chaperones pay $3 each.


Contact Amanda Holcomb to schedule a tour.
