The Brooks Museum Education Department is dedicated to working with teachers and assisting them with ideas for integrating museum exhibitions into school curricula and to providing an alternative learning environment apart from the school setting. 


Free Admission for Teachers

Teachers always receive free admission to the Brooks with a school ID card. We encourage you to visit in advance of any school tours, so that you can plan pre- and post-tour activities accordingly. 

Book a Free School Tour

The museum offers free guided and free self-guided tours that are designed to engage students in critical thinking about art, and to support students to develop visual literacy skills. Click here to book your school tour.

Teacher Workshops

Workshops are scheduled in conjunction with special exhibitions periodically throughout the year. These sessions are designed to introduce exhibits to the teachers and to discuss related teaching methods. The education department sends flyers and emails to the schools when a workshop is scheduled.
