Visit with My Students


Discover works of art, participate in lively group discussions, and apply critical and creative thinking skills in new contexts.
A student stands in front of a docent and other students and uses her hands to demonstrate her reaction to a work of art.

The Art Institute is open, and we can’t wait to see you in the galleries. The museum experience is a little different as we’ve taken precautions to protect the health and safety of our visitors and our staff.

Please note the following changes and see the full list of new visiting policies.

Student Tours Hiatus
K–12 student tours are currently on hiatus. Student groups can arrange to visit the museum through general admission instead of group sales. General admission tickets can be purchased in advance through our ticketing website. For hours, prices, and detailed information about visiting the museum, please review the museum’s Visit and FAQs pages. And remember—Chicago students under 18 and all children under 14 always receive free admission. Illinois teachers are also able to receive free admission by submitting an Educator Admission Request.

We continue to encourage you to explore our online and digital resources for learning.
