Camp and Community Youth Group Visit Request Form

The Museum is currently accepting appointment requests for guided and self-guided visits.

The Met welcomes all camp and community youth groups and invites you to request either a guided visit led by trained Museum educators and volunteers or a self-guided visit, which allows you to lead your own group through the Museum. Please note that appointments are required for all camp and community youth groups visiting the Museum.

Guided-visit appointments can be made no less than three weeks in advance of the requested visit date, and self-guided-visit appointments can be made no less than two weeks in advance. A separate form must be submitted for each visit, and we will do our best to accommodate your request(s). However, due to high volume, your visit is not confirmed until you have received a confirmation letter by email from the Museum.

When selecting date and time preferences for your visit, please consider approximate travel time from your organization, as well as any guidelines your organization may have regarding bus departure and return times.

Visit Information

You have requested a guided visit. These hour-long tours are led by trained Museum educators and volunteers and offer extraordinary opportunities for children to make the most of their encounters with great works of art. Our educators engage students in learner-centered, inquiry-based conversations that foster curriculum connections and encourage important learning skills such as evidence-based reasoning and critical thinking. Guided visits also inspire children to build strong content knowledge across disciplines, and support their confidence, curiosity and creativity.

Please note that not all visit topics are available at all times.
