Pre-K–12 School Groups

Thank you for your interest in visiting Albright-Knox Northland. In order to ensure a safe and socially distant environment for our all, our in-person tour programs are on hold until further notice. 

We are currently offering two FREE interactive virtual experiences with museum educators, including virtual lessons focusing on the Albright-Knox's collection and the AT&T Virtual Field Trips program, which focuses on special exhibitions on view at Albright-Knox Northland. Availability is limited; schedule your virtual experience today!

Virtual field trips for Comunidades Visibles: The Materiality of Migration are available through May 14, 2021, and virtual lessons focusing on our collection are available through June 2021. (Please note: Our collection works are not on view while the museum's Elmwood Avenue campus is under construction.)

What to Expect

Interactive virtual lessons are designed to support the development of the critical and creative thinkers of tomorrow. These experiences will engage students with works of art from the Albright-Knox’s collection and special exhibitions on view at Albright-Knox Northland. Lessons will incorporate a range of learning strategies, including open-ended and guided questions, conversation, and activities.

Each session will be taught by Albright-Knox educators via videoconferencing.

Tour Times and Length

Each lesson will be 45 minutes in length but can be shortened upon request. We are offering these experiences Tuesday through Friday anytime between 9 am and 3 pm.
