Dear Teachers,

As spring approaches, we invite you and your students to consider your relationship with the things in your life through the eyes of a conservator and a celebrated contemporary American artist. Book a guided tour and explore Conserving Active Matter and Richard Tuttle: What Is the Object? and learn about the field of cultural heritage science conservation and examine the meaning of objects through touch. Our guided tours engage young people in lively discussion and activities that connect objects and storytelling to their own lives.

Guided Tours
We are delighted to be able to welcome school groups Mondays through Saturdays from 10 am–4 pm. We offer both in-person and virtual guided tours that are one hour in duration. Virtual tours will be led through Zoom using all safety precautions and procedures. A Zoom link and a materials list will be emailed at least 24 hours in advance of the tour.

Tour Fees
NYC DOE school groups: Free
All other groups of up to 35 participants: $110

We are currently accepting reservations and encourage you to schedule a virtual tour before all spaces are filled. Book now by emailing
