Chaperone Guidelines

In order to ensure the most positive and meaningful experience for all visitors participating in school group tours, we ask you to share our Museum Guidelines, as well as the chaperone guidelines listed below, with all chaperones and students before arriving at the museum.

Responsibilities of a Chaperone

  • Chaperones can enhance the success of the tour and the amount of learning that can take place by showing active interest in the works of art while supervising student behavior.
  • While touring the museum, each chaperone is required to stay with his or her assigned group at all times, including during and after the tour. All students in grades K through 12 must remain in groups with their assigned chaperone at all times.
  • It is the responsibility of the chaperone to review the museum rules and behavior, to communicate the rules to their group, and to enforce the rules at all times while in the museum.
  • If student behavior is found to be disruptive to the museum setting, the museum reserves the right to ask the group to sit out the rest of the tour.
