Make The Met part of your school year! The Museum is currently accepting appointment requests for guided and self-guided visits.
The Met welcomes all school-age learners. We invite 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 students through the Museum. Please note that appointments are required for all school 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.
Before submitting your request, please consult your school's administration and calendar regarding bus maintenance days, testing days, school holidays, and half days. When selecting date and time preferences for your visit, please consider approximate travel time from your school, as well as any guidelines your school may have regarding school bus departure and return times.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art's school tour program is made possible by the generosity of Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman.
