TMORA offers unique educational experiences that feature the Museum’s permanent collection and special exhibitions on view.

School Tours: K-12 & University

Bring your class to the Museum! TMORA’s field trip experiences increase students’ understanding of the art, culture, and history of the region through our collections and exhibitions. TMORA educators facilitate interactive explorations of artwork in the galleries, and we are happy to tailor the experience to your curriculum and the unique learning needs of your students. In addition to learning about art, history, and culture, students develop museum literacy skills and gain tools for understanding art.

Guided or Self-Guided Tours

TMORA’s gallery spaces can accommodate a group of up to 50 students. You may choose to have your students travel through the museum on a tour with trained TMORA Museum Guides, or you may choose to visit on your own. To schedule a visit, please fill out the form below.

In-class Workshops

TMORA educators may be able to visit your classroom to provide a pre-visit orientation in advance of a field trip or an object-based lesson featuring materials from the TMORA education collection. Lesson plans implement Minnesota K-12 Academic Standards and can be tailored to your curriculum. Past offerings have fit into units on folktales and fairy tales, global history, world literature, and socially-engaged artwork.
