During school tours, museum educators and docents help students engage with art and empower them to make meaningful connections to their curriculum, their world, and themselves. Our interdisciplinary, inquiry-based tours use artwork from our collection spanning a range of media and historical eras to foster critical thinking skills and support the Virginia Standards of Learning.

School tours at the Chrysler Museum are free and are typically one hour in length. Demonstrations at the Glass Studio can accommodate up to 80 students. Choose a tour from our list below or email Cody Long to customize a school tour.

Tour FAQs

Who gives tours?

Our trained tour guides (Docents) will develop your tour by selecting works of art related to the theme you’ve selected. Once groups arrive and are divided, they will be led by a Docent who will guide them in exploring works of art. You will not need to bring additional materials. Groups may see different works of art, but they will tour the selected location using the same theme. At the end of the visit, groups will return to the Museum entrance.

How many chaperones are needed?

We require one chaperone/teacher for every 10 students. Our staff members will divide your group according to the number of guides available. When you arrive, please help us to ensure that a chaperone accompanies each group.

What are the Museum rules?

For your safety and the safety of the art, we ask that teachers and chaperones remain with their group at all times. Works of art are more fragile than they appear; please remind your students that it is important not to touch. Flash photography is prohibited in some of our spaces, as some works of art are sensitive to light. Photographs are not permitted in some special exhibitions. School rules are also good rules for the Museum.

Can we bring food?

Please plan for your group(s) to eat on the bus before or after their visit or at your school.

Where do we park?

Buses should drop off and pick up their groups in front of the tour location. Drivers must carry cellphones and be reachable during and after tours.

What if we are late?

To change or cancel your tour, please contact Ruth Sanchez before your tour date at rsanchez@chrysler.org or (757) 333-6269. If your group is running behind on the day of your tour, please let us know by calling (757) 333-6269 before 9:30 a.m. or (757) 644-6200 after 9:30 a.m. More questions? Email Ruth Sanchez.
