Scheduling Tours

The Indiana University Art Museum offers tours of its collections free of charge.

To schedule a tour, please contact Patsy Rahn, tour coordinator at

When scheduling a tour, we ask that you keep in mind the following:
We need at least two weeks' notice to schedule a guided tour of the collections.
We need at least four weeks' notice to schedule customized tours based on themes, issues, and/or ideas in a class's curriculum.
We will send you a letter to confirm your tour.
No tour is regarded as confirmed by the museum's education department without a written letter of confirmation.
Please call ahead to inform us of any group visit to the galleries.

The museum has a very active tour program that serves over 17,500 visitors each year, of which approximately half are children.

The museumís education department can customize a program around various disciplines, themes, issues, and ideas expressed in a class curriculum. We provided over 500 curriculum-structured tours last year.

Educators can also arrange special interactive tours of art or architecture on campus, including the famous Thomas Hart Benton murals.

The museum offers a docent-led public tour every Saturday at 2:00 p.m.; a special, docent-led thematic tour is offered at 2:00 p.m. on the first Saturday of each month.

The museumís education department can provide audio description tours and/or touch tours for people with low vision (four-weeks minimum notice).
