Classes and Groups

Gallery Visits

Faculty and GSIs are invited to visit with their classes to extend their learning in the Museum's exhibit galleries.  There is no charge for U-M class visits, but we ask that you call ahead at least two weeks ahead to let us know you are coming. This helps us track U-M class use of the Museum and allows you to avoid conflicts with other scheduled groups.

Please contact the main office at (734) 764-0480 or via email to with details about your visit, including your preferred date, time, class name, and number of students.
