While the museum is closed for expansion, tours at Hood Downtown, the Orozco murals, and public art on campus are available to school groups and the public, free of charge. Tours actively engage visitors with original works of art and improve their visual literacy.

If you would like to receive information about our tours and other programs directly via our mailings and email announcements, please contact the Education Department.
