School Programs

Notice: Due to the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s advisement against physical field trips for the 2020–21 school year, we are in the process of transitioning our K–12 programs to virtual experiences.

Support your students’ critical thinking, creativity, and visual literacy skills with a trip to the museum!

New Virtual Experiences

Support your students’ critical thinking, creativity, and visual literacy skills with our new virtual programs.

Learning Tool Kits

Our new Learning Tool Kits for Kindergarten to 12th-grade students use artworks in the collection to inspire critical thinking, creative thinking, empathy, and academic connections. Each tool kit, organized by grades K–2, 3–5, 6–8, and 9–12, support standards for art, history, English, civics, and social studies curriculum.

School Group Visits

Temporarily on hold

There are two types of school group visits: guided School Group Tours and guided School Group Workshops. School visits take place entirely in the museum galleries where students engage with relevant thematic content and build learning skills such as observation, interpretation, and inference-making. Carnegie Museum of Art highly recommends a guided group visit. Self-guided group visits are also available.

Learn more about School Group Visits, including how to make a reservation, prices, and other guidelines.
