For your convenience, you may arrange a free tour by calling the tour coordinator at (513) 639-2975 or submitting an online request form Monday through Friday. Tours must be scheduled at least four weeks in advance. You will receive a pre-visit Teacher Information Packet with your tour confirmation, prior to your visit.
School groups must be accompanied by at least one adult chaperone for every ten students. You and the chaperones are responsible for students’ behavior at all times, including compliance with all Cincinnati Art Museum regulations. To help you, your chaperones, and your students understand the Art Museum’s guidelines, a confirmation packet, including a brochure entitled Field Trip Guide containing suggested guidelines, will be mailed to you.
The Cincinnati Art Museum is wheelchair accessible. Tours are available in French, German, and Spanish. Please indicate whether your group has special needs.
Buses may drop off students in front of the Cincinnati Art Museum and park in the lot free of charge. Backpacks, umbrellas, bags, and other large items are not permitted in the galleries; we recommend that you leave these items on the bus. Coat bins are available for student tour groups. Only pencils are permitted in the permanent exhibitions. No writing utensils are permitted in special exhibitions.
Regrettably, the Art Museum does not have facilities for eating packed lunches so please leave all food on the buses.
