The Walker offers interactive, learner-centered, and inquiry-based explorations of the galleries and/or the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. All guided visits are led by our professional museum educators and can be customized to focus on specific themes and exhibitions.

Customized tour options are available for Special Education classrooms (including Citywide Autism Program and inclusive classrooms). Walker Education supports learning for people of all ages, abilities, and familiarity with contemporary and modern art.

Before Your Visit

Share the pre-visit video (above) with any K–12 classroom or use the Field Trip Prep lesson plans (below) to introduce your students to the Walker. These will help them feel prepared and excited for their visit. The Social Narrative is another helpful tool for younger students and students who may feel nervous about the field trip.
