Krannert Art Museum

Explore over 10,000 pieces of artwork dating back to the 4th millennium BCE to the present, from a collection that includes American painting, decorative arts, Chinese scrolls and ink wash, classical Greek art, and much more. On guided tours, groups will visit four art galleries and closely examine a few pieces of work from each, and discuss them, to strengthen their ability to look closely, think critically, and formulate interpretations based on contextual information. Students and scouts can explore color, lines, and shapes, ancient worlds, storytelling, and more. Tours in Spanish, and French, are also available for language-learning groups.
