Art & Science Museum Tour:

While visiting Southern Utah University, students will find similarities between art and science as they investigate exhibits in both campus museums. At the Frehner Museum of Natural History, students will learn about the national park system, public lands, and the animals and plants that live in this environment. After discussing the elements of art and design at SUMA, students will draw upon what they have learned by creating their own works of art. (Offered to grades K-12, ideal for 4th and 7th grades)

Tours will be based on the fall exhibition, A World Transformed: The Transcontinental Railroad and Utah. We will be highlighting 4th and 7th grade standards by connecting curriculum to key elements in the exhibition. 


SUMA is an educational museum. As part of an artist's learning, they study the human figure to learn how to best represent the human form in two- and three- dimensional art. Exhibitions in our museum may contain representations of the nude human figure, so we encourage concerned educators to preview the exhibition or contact with any questions or concerns regarding what will be displayed in the gallery during your tour.

Please complete the form below to sign up for a tour. Once your request has been processed, we will get back to you as soon as possible.
