Tours at CAMH are designed to cultivate critical and flexible thinking. The programs developed by the CAMH Education Team aim to guide a visitor in the exploration of new spaces, ideas, and perspectives.
CAMH offers group tours for visitors of all ages, backgrounds, and interests. During guided tours, trained members of our esteemed FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) Team encourage visitors to creatively observe their surroundings. The FAQ Team promotes open-ended discussion and reflection, making connections between art and the everyday. Educators can also choose to participate in a hands-on workshop where students gain insight into new materials, the artistic process, and creative approaches to making.
We encourage educators of all levels interested in tailoring their visit to align with a specific curriculum to contact our Tour Programs Coordinator at email@example.com or 713.284.8276. Together we can design further learning opportunities.

Yes, if you are bringing a group larger than 10 people to the museum, please contact our Tour Programs Coordinator at email@example.com or 713.284.8278. Even if you are interested in a self-guided visit, we will need to coordinate with other groups, programs, and events. If you do not schedule your visit, we cannot guarantee entry into the museum.
Please check out our one-page guides made for teachers. You will find information about the exhibition, key questions, and curriculum connections.
CAMH is always free and welcomes you to come by and preview any exhibition before bringing your group tour.
If you have questions or would like to connect an exhibition to something very specific, feel free to contact our Education Team, and we can work with you directly to provide a deep learning experience for your students.
