School + Adult Group Visits


SCMA welcomes groups of up to forty people with advance reservations. We request one chaperone per ten students for K–12 group visits.  Large groups will be divided into two sections of twenty.  Guided visits may be scheduled Tuesday through Friday at 10:30AM, 11:30AM or 1:00PM.  Visits scheduled during weekends and College breaks may be accommodated depending on availability. Self-guided visits may be scheduled at any time during Museum hours.  

We ask for three to four weeks advance notice for group reservations.  There are two ways to request a reservation:

A staff person will work with you to make your reservation.  Letters of confirmation will be sent via email and include details about directions and bus parking.  Please review the Museum Guidelines with your group before your visit. 

Groups larger than forty people often divide themselves between the College’s Lyman Plant House (“Botanic Garden”) and the Museum of Art.  The Botanic Garden also offers guided and self-guided visits for groups of all ages. 


K-12 and College groups are free of charge.  Museum Admission fees apply to other groups.  There is no extra fee for having a student guide your group. Adult groups having a guided tour are asked to make an additional donation of $2 per person; funds support education programs.

Changes and Cancellations

Please call (413) 585-2781 or email as soon as possible after your visit is confirmed with any changes or cancellations so that we can plan accordingly.
