DePaul Art Museum > Visit > Tours & Collection Visits
Teachers and other community group leaders are welcome to conduct self-guided exhibition tours. During our summer 2021 season, class or other group visits (5+ people) require a reservation with staff and may only take place Tuesdays through Thursdays, 9am - 4pm. In order to help you prepare, there is a Research Guide link for each exhibition on our website, as well as additional resources you can consult.
Let our experienced staff share their knowledge and expertise with your students and community groups. We can work with you to tailor a tour so it enhances your lessons and curricula. Our tours are designed for all students, use accessible and relevant language, and encourage conversation.
A visit to our Collection Study Room enables you and your students to closely examine selected artworks in person. We can guide you in the selection of works based on the area of study and provide background information during your visit. We can also educate your classes about how objects entered the collection as well as broader topics, including the economic and political aspects of collecting art. We welcome all disciplines to explore the collection with us by appointment only.
collection website allows you to peruse a selection of the museum’s rich holdings for a better understanding of the types of works we collect and our areas of focus. This digital collection platform provides easy access to the collection for use in a classroom setting.
