Come and see what's on view at the Wexner Center! Tours are great ways to find out more about the Wexner Center's exhibitions and architecture, bringing art alive through spirited discussion and providing unique, behind-the-scenes insights into contemporary culture.

Docent-led and self-guided tours are available to diverse audiences of all ages, including school and university  students, community groups and organizations, coworkers, families, and friends.

 

School and Group Tours | Grades K–12

Our tour program for schools introduces students to the contemporary art on view in the Wexner Center galleries and our building's unique architecture. Guided tours are highly individualized, interactive, and age appropriate. Tours can be customized to fit your course objectives in language arts, social studies, history, visual arts, foreign languages, and other subjects; we develop resources for each exhibition and make them available to teachers. We encourage you to strategize with us about how we can plan your tour to enhance classroom curriculum. Gallery admission and docent-led tours are free for students.

The Wexner Center also supports schools through our bus subsidy program, offering reimbursements for transportations costs to and from the Wex. For more information and for an application click here.
