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. To learn more about tours and the Kemper Museum busing program, visit the TOURS page.
Hone your art detective skills and discover something new about contemporary art at the Kemper Museum. The third Saturday of each month is Scavenger Saturday for families. Children with adults may pick up a self-guided activity at the Visitor Services Desk and follow the clues on this “ART-astic” adventure. When finished with the activity, children may pick up a take-home, art-making activity kit. No reservations are required.
Scavenger Saturday at the Kemper Museum are made possible with generous support from the R.A. Long Foundation.

As you view works in the featured exhibition, you are encouraged to use the hands-on materials to gain a deeper understanding of the exhibition and the beauty, intention, and meaning of the works of art on view. Look for the Art(full) Bag, available every day, just inside the main exhibition gallery.
