Guided tours are most successful when students have prepared for their visit and arrive with questions, insight, and enthusiasm.
Tours are limited to seventy-five people per topic. Please plan to arrive ten minutes before your scheduled tour time, as arriving late will result in a shortened tour. If you need to reschedule, please inform us as soon as possible. Spring is a very busy time for tours, so consider fall and winter tours for ease in scheduling.
NOTE: Due to the large number of tours that have been scheduled for school groups this spring, please note that not all requests are able to be honored due to capacity limits. Please do not make final plans for your tour until the tour coordinator has confirmed your reservation via e-mail.
All guided tours must be accompanied by at least one adult chaperone for every ten students. Before you arrive at the art museum, please divide into small groups with no more than ten students per group. The number of groups must correspond to the number of Docents listed on your confirmation letter.
To help facilitate interaction between the Docents and students, we ask that you provide nametags for all students participating in your guided tour.
Tours may be scheduled by calling the Tour Coordinator at (513) 639.2975, Monday through Friday, or by submitting an online School Tour Request Form. Tours must be scheduled at least four weeks in advance. The art museum’s guidelines and other preparatory materials will be sent to you along with your tour confirmation.
The Cincinnati Art Museum is wheelchair accessible. Tours are also available in French, German, and Spanish. Please indicate when scheduling whether your group has any special needs or requests.
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. Chaperones are asked to remain with the group at all times, maintain orderly student conduct, and assist Docents when needed.
The Cincinnati Art Museum offers a limited number of free buses annually through the Cincinnati Art Museum Bus for Kids Fund. See link for details.
