For Faculty

Group Tours
We encourage visits by college and university classes and groups. Request a docent-guided visit or set your own pace by self-guiding through the galleries. Contact our Group Visit Associate at (860) 838-4046 to book a visit today. Faculty can also browse and schedule tours online.

Curriculum-structured Tours
Curriculum-structured tours are tailored to amplify and enhance the content of a specific academic course or topic. Work with museum staff to plan an appropriate museum experience. Call (860) 838-4047 or email to discuss the possibilities at least one month in advance.

Faculty Mailing List
Join our faculty mailing list to receive reminders of upcoming special exhibitions, lectures, internship application deadlines, and university events via email. It’s easy! Just send us an email with your name, university/college affiliation, address, and telephone number.

Discovery Pass
Book a docent-guided visit for your students and receive a Discovery Pass. This one-time free pass allows professors to explore our permanent collection and special exhibitions as they prepare for their students’ upcoming tour and plan connections to their classroom teaching. This pass expires at the time of the class visit.
