Elementary students listen to a guide describing art work in the Cerf Gallery.

The Middlebury College Museum of Art invites public groups and school groups of all ages to explore art from its permanent collection and special exhibitions.

Our programs encourage students to make connections between works of art from different cultures and time periods and their own experiences. School programs at the Museum also address many of the goals in Vermont’s K–12 academic standards, especially in the Visual Arts, Language Arts, and Social Studies.

Virtual Visits

For those who are not able to visit us in person, we invite you to connect with art remotely by browsing our collections database, reading our blog, and interacting with us @middartmuseum via FacebookTwitter, and Instagram.

Teacher Workshop

Due to staffing shortages we are currently not offering guided tours for school groups. However, educational resources may be available to help you prepare for a self-guided class visit to the museum. To inquire about possible teaching resources and/or to discuss strategies to prepare your students for their visit, please contact Caitlin Harder, our Coordinator of Events and Programming. Additionally, those wishing to bring a class to the museum will need to request a day/time via our Public Class/Group Visit Request Form.

Programs at Middlebury College

We suggest you review our upcoming events, many of which complement our special exhibitions. We also suggest you check the College’s calendar of events for lectures, performances, gallery talks, family programs, and other events that are offered campus wide in connection with exhibitions at the Museum.


School programs at the Middlebury College Museum of Art are made possible by generous support from the Arthur and Helen Baer Charitable Foundation with additional funding from the Middlebury College Friends of the Art Museum.
