School Tours

When students take a guided tour, they learn fascinating information about a number of carefully selected objects.

SJMA guided group tours utilize inquiry-based discussion methods to support both the California State Visual Arts and Common Core Standards.

To schedule your visit please use the online Scheduler and download the Pre-Visit Packet. If you need assistance please send e-mail to or call 408.291.5393.

Use our "Scheduler" to book your visit.

Any group of 10 or more people is considered a  group tour. Teachers, professors, and other professionals who wish to bring in a group larger than 10 to the Museum must use the scheduler to set-up a self-guided tour. Please check here for more information.
