Virtual Guided Tours

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. We will offer virtual tours beginning October 1. 

All school tours at the Chrysler Museum are free. Virtual tours are generally 20–30 minutes in length and cover 1–3 artworks. Virtual tours are synchronous experiences where students can participate in analysis and share their personal connections to art. 

Choose a tour from our list below or email Cody Long (clong@chrysler.org), School and Teacher Programs Coordinator, to customize a school tour.

Multiple Modernisms
Meet the Museum

This tour is the perfect introduction to the Chrysler Museum’s collection of ancient art from around the world, American and European paintings and sculpture, and glass.

Artists as Activists

What role does a contemporary artist play in society? What does their artwork say about the world around them? This tour, designed for middle and high school students, explores how artists comment on and influence social and political issues.

Looking at Labels

Curators leave clues in the label next to each artwork. Solve the mysteries in some of our pieces through real-world examples of interpretive text.

Virtual Tour FAQs

Who gives tours?
Our School and Teacher Programs Coordinator partners with teachers to select works of art related to the selected theme. During the virtual tour, a member of the Chrysler Museum’s education staff will facilitate technology and a docent will guide students in exploring works of art.

How do virtual tours work?
We use Zoom to provide virtual tours. Our staff can provide a link or teachers can invite us to participate in their Zoom class. Either way, please prepare students to have their preferred name listed and microphones muted unless they are called on. We understand teachers likely have their own Zoom expectations. It is helpful for teachers to share them with our staff.

Our education staff will give a brief tutorial for students on how to participate in a virtual tour. We want to ensure that all students can participate in a virtual tour in a way they feel most comfortable.

Students do not have to be on camera nor do we need to see their faces. Our tours are designed to be interactive; we’ll ask students to wave at the camera to answer questions, and we will call on them. Students can also answer via chat.

Why should my students experience a virtual tour?
Our interactive tours are meant to build community, encourage critical thinking, and deepen academic connections. In the age of COVID-19, these tours give students opportunities to connect to one another and art and enjoy the novelty of a museum experience much like they would during a field trip. The Chrysler Museum is also currently open and free, giving students and their families one way to safely get out of the house.

Will you provide pre- and post-visit materials?
Available materials will be sent to the teacher upon confirmation of the tour.

I have multiple classes or sections. Do I need to submit a form for each class?
No, please check the “I have multiple classes or sections” box. Our Tour and Docent Coordinator will help ensure each class receives a tour experience.

How many students can you accommodate at one time?
In order to provide the best experience for students, we try to limit these experiences to 30 students at one time.
