School Tours

The Hood Museum of Art offers regional school children the opportunity to learn from great works of art. During school group visits, students are encouraged to make connections between classroom learning and the museum’s collection, to exercise their creative and analytical thinking skills, and to gain appreciation for the accomplishments of cultures from around the world.

Community Tours

Group tours of the museum’s collections and exhibitions led by museum docents are available by appointment for any group of five or more. To schedule a tour, email hood.museum.tours@dartmouth.edu or call the Education Department at (603) 646-1469.

Introductory tours, offered on select Saturday afternoons, are designed to introduce visitors to special exhibitions. See the calendar of events for current listings of introductory tours taking place at the Hood.
