K-12 Field Trips

A limited number of in-person, guided, and thematic tours for classes of elementary, middle and high school students are available by reservation between 9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Tuesday through Friday. Currently, the maximum group size for an in-person school tour is 20 students, but continue to check our site for current and up-to-date information. Larger groups may schedule multiple visits. Students will be divided into small groups of six to eight for their tour. The cost is $3 per student plus tax; teachers and one chaperone per eight students are free. Tours last 90 minutes.

For an alternative to in-person tours, we currently offer virtual visits with an educator. As with our in-person K-12 tours, Reynolda will work with teachers to create a virtual field trip that will meet their curricular needs. The visits will teach students several skills, including critical thinking, close looking, and social and emotional learning competencies. Virtual classroom visits can be 30 minutes to one hour in length and will cost $40 for half-hour to 40 minutes in length or $50 for one hour in length.

Reynolda Gardens’ school tours are currently unavailable. Contact gardens@wfu.edu with any inquiries.

Beginning Saturday, March 5, masks will be optional indoors at Reynolda House and Gardens. You may of course continue to wear a mask for your personal protection even if others are not masked. Anyone who needs to, or prefers to, wear a mask in any setting is welcome to do so. If your school still requires masks, please let us know when you schedule a tour and our docents and staff working with your group will follow your school policy, but know that other visitors to the museum may not. Docents may choose to wear masks throughout the tour.
