Cornell Students

Free tours are available for any Cornell student group—organizations, residence halls, sororities and fraternities, or even a group of friends.

We request a minimum of 5 students and a maximum of 15 per group. Two weeks notice is required to get on our schedule.

Tours may involve a look at some of the highlights of the Museum's collections, or a closer look at any theme that interests your group. We'll work with you to develop a tour that fits your needs and interests.

Hands-on workshops can be scheduled for groups with a minimum of 5 students. Depending on the workshop, there should be a maximum of 8-15 per group and a $3-$4 materials fee per person. All workshops begin with a short tour of related objects in our collection. We can work in watercolor, acrylic, ink, and charcoal. Popular topics include alternative photography, printmaking, and sculptures.
