Booking a Tour

Who will guide your group?
Experienced, and dedicated volunteer guides, will lead your group. Teachers and adult chaperones are required to stay with each group and are responsible for discipline.

Workshops suitable for elementary school age children have been developed based on our Art Resource Kits. Workshops will be offered to school classes and children’s clubs and organizations.

Art Resource Kits
Getting to know the arts is a vital component of any young person’s learning. In order for us to share the AGNS collection, and to reach out into our community, we have developed a series of art curriculum resource kits. Learn more about Art Resource Kits
