The Blanton’s school group visits aim to inspire curiosity and foster lifelong relationships between students and the art through interactive, inquiry-based explorations of art. In addition to in-person guided visits, the Blanton’s education department has developed a range of digital resources to support classroom and at-home learning. Learn more on our PK-12 Resources page.
Hour-long gallery lessons are available to school groups with at least two weeks advance notice. (Our schedule fills quickly, so booking early is advised.) We can accommodate a maximum of 60 students (and required chaperones*) Wednesday-Friday at 10:30am and 11:30am.
To request a guided visit for your school, please complete the K-12 Group Visit Request form.
*1 chaperone is required for every 8 students.
School group visits are $2 per student, including on Thursdays. Required chaperones and teachers accompanying the group are free. For planning purposes, teachers always receive free admission upon presentation of a school ID. Additional adults pay the general admission price of $12.
Drop Off & Parking
Due to construction at the museum, buses should plan to drop-off at the Metro Bus Stop at University Avenue and 21st Street in front of University Christian Church on the UT Campus, approximately 7 minutes walking to the Blanton.
Bus parking near the Blanton is extremely limited. Please plan ahead.
Chaperones can park in the Brazos Garage to the east of the museum. The museum offers a discounted parking rate of $4 when presented with a ticket from the parking garage.
