K-12 Tours

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.

As no other organizations on campus are offering tours this fall, we still want to make sure you can bring your whole grade on your tour. If you are interested in bringing more than 60 students on the same day, we will offer a self-guided outdoors tour option. While part of your group is in the museum, the other part of your group will be provided activities to do while they explore the nature and sculptures of SUU campus. This is self-guided and requires chaperones. Let us know if you're interested in this option by noting so when you schedule your tour.
