WVU Class Tours

As an academic museum, The Art Museum of WVU makes working closely with university professors, staff, and students a priority. We encourage visits from all departments across campus. Even if the connection doesn’t seem immediately obvious, we can help you situate the learning in your course within a real-world and interdisciplinary context!

In order to best utilize the museum and its resources, please take the following policies into consideration when planning your visit:

  • Tours must be requested at least three weeks in advance. Tour dates are not guaranteed until confirmed by a member of museum staff.
  • The museum can accommodate up to 50 students at a time. If bringing a group of larger than 30, we suggest dividing into smaller groups and utilizing teaching assistants or volunteer docents to help facilitate your visit.
  • All university groups must be scheduled prior to visiting. Even if a professor or instructor desires to lead the class in a tour, he or she must contact us with a tour request in order to avoid scheduling conflicts with other groups and overcrowding in the galleries.

Other ways to utilize the museum

In addition to tours, the Art Museum can assist faculty and students by:

  • Arranging a collection observation session to closely study objects not currently on display. We can help identify works of art relevant to your curriculum and research. If your research or scholarship requires you to view a piece in our collection that is not currently on display, please contact Museum Registrar Karen Louvar at  
  • Collaborating with faculty to create authentic, creative, and dynamic learning experiences such as: curatorial projects, student presentations and performances and using the museum as a laboratory for scientific research.
  • Working with departments and units to provide extra-curricular engagement such as student nights, workshops, and talks.
