Groups of ten or more may schedule free docent-led (guided) tours of the Kemper Museum’s permanent collection and special exhibitions. Tour reservations must be made two weeks in advance of the visit date. Maximum capacity is 50 people per one-hour tour. One chaperone for every ten students is required. Self-guided groups are strongly encouraged to make group tour reservations in advance, as well.

Preschool through university educators may schedule free school tours of the Kemper Museum. The objective of the Kemper Museum school tour program is to engage students in discussion about modern and contemporary art and how it relates to students’ education and lives. With advance input from classroom and art teachers, tour content can be tailored to the groups’ needs. Thematic content, interdisciplinary curriculum connections, vocabulary words, etc., can be integrated into guided tours. Free teacher resources related to special exhibitions and/or seasonal teacher workshops are also available throughout the school year to assist educators in planning Museum visits.

To book a group tour reservation, please download our Group Tour Registration Form. For more information contact us at or 816-457-6137.

The Kemper Museum provides funds to cover transportation costs for school groups to and from the Museum. The purpose of this program is to engage students in discussion about contemporary art at the Museum and to make connections between art of today and their everyday lives.
