SUMA is designed to serve as a model laboratory for collections and exhibition research, educational programming, public school outreach and empirical evaluation of the visitor experience. The SUMA classroom is dedicated to educational programs in service to the museum, its mission and activities.


Classroom Tours at SUMA

Our fall classroom tours will start on October 18th and go through December 9th to align with our fall exhibition, “This Earth.” Tours will be offered in the morning and afternoon. 


Morning tours (9-11 a.m): Offered Monday through Thursday
Afternoon tours (1-3 p.m): Offered Monday and Wednesday only 


Each tour slot lasts two hours and can accommodate two classes (up to 60 students total.) During the tour, one class will start by doing a hands-on activity in the classroom while the other class will start by touring the gallery. After one hour they will switch.


While we will not be partnering with the Frehner Museum of Natural History this year, there are several other nearby organizations that also offer classroom tours. Please check back for more information about these organizations if you are interested in scheduling tours to multiple places in the same day.


Fall tour sign-ups will open August 9th. Please check back then to sign up!
