Self Guided Visits
Want to schedule a visit?
Self-guided visits provide the opportunity for educators to engage directly with their students in a museum setting. This type of visit allows educators to prepare and lead customized experiences for their students. The DIA offers planning materials including gallery guides, maps and visiting guidelines that can be used to prepare for your self-guided visit.
The DIA is no longer accepting applications for general museum field trips in this school year.
We are still accepting applications for summer school or summer camp field trips, and Samurai: Beyond the Sword.
- If you and your group are interested in visiting our ticketed Samurai: Beyond the Sword Exhibition for $8 per person, please indicate your interest in the "Special Needs" section of the application.
- Please note all school visits require five weeks notice to schedule.
- Visits can be scheduled to begin as soon as the museum opens (view museum hours).
