Please use this faculty request form to schedule all self-guided and co-facilitated visits to the Allen Memorial Art Museum.

For faculty members who would like to collaborate with the Academic Programs department on planning and executing a visit, this form also serves as a preliminary brainstorming sheet for how object-based learning can benefit your course.

  • at least one month before the intended date of your Co-Facilitated Visit (galleries or PSR)

Requests will be reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis. Once your request has been reviewed, you will receive a confirmation email within three business days with the date and time of your visit.

We look forward to welcoming you and your students to the museum!
