Tours at the Wexner Center

Come and see what's on view at the Wexner Center. Bring your students, visit with a youth or community group, come on your own or with your family.

Guided tours are great ways to find out more about the Wexner Center's exhibitions and architecture. Tours bring art and architecture alive through spirited discussion and often provide unique "behind-the-scenes" insights into contemporary culture.

Walk-In Tours

Walk-In Tours introduce highlights from our current exhibitions, while also encouraging you to ask questions and express your own ideas. The tours are scheduled on a variety of dates and times, so you can find one to fit your busy schedule. They also are timed to complement other interesting and appealing events at the Wexner Center, so that you can easily sample different kinds of programs on one visit, if you like. Check the current schedule on the Public Programs pages.

Self-Guided Tours

Groups visiting the center on a self-guided basis are always welcome! If your group will be larger than 10 people, we ask that you call us the education department at least 3 weeks in advance of your desired visit. Due to high levels of gallery traffic during the current exhibition, groups may be asked to consider an alternative date for their visit. Self-guided tours can be scheduled Tuesday-Sunday during regular gallery hours.

Guided Tours for Community Groups

Guided architecture tours and exhibition tours are available for college and university groups, youth or adult community groups, and travel groups. Tours are always lively, interactive, and fun—and they can be individually tailored for varied ages and interests. All tours must be scheduled a minimum of three weeks in advance. Groups of children ages 13 or younger must be accompanied by one adult for every 10 children. Download a group tour reservation form here.

Guided School and Group Tours | Grades K-12

Our tour programs for schools introduce the contemporary art on view at the Wexner Center galleries and our building's spectacular and unique architecture. All tours are led by professional educators or docents.

Tours are highly individualized and interactive, and tour content is always age appropriate. Please talk with us about how we can plan your tour to enhance your classroom curriculum. Tours can be planned to fit your course objectives in language arts, social studies, history, the visual arts, foreign languages, and many other subjects.

School tours are typically scheduled Tuesday through Friday from 10 AM to 3 PM and last about an hour. Download a school tour reservation form here.
