School and Group Tours

School Tours


Students from Peabody School visit the museum for a tour.
The Kluge-Ruhe Collection offers guided tours by appointment to groups of six or more people. Given by members of the staff or a docent, tours usually last between forty-five and sixty minutes. Guided tours are reserved for grades 3 and up, but younger grades are welcome to visit the museum as a class led by their instructor. We can accommodate forty to fifty people in the gallery at one time. Outdoor tables are available in nice weather for picnic lunches before or after the tour.

Tours can be tailored to fit your curriculum or to include the handling of objects or a hands-on art project. Please contact us well in advance to schedule a specialized tour.

Call 434-244-0234 or contact the Kluge-Ruhe Collection to make tour arrangements for your school group.

Group Tours

Free, guided tours are offered by appointment to groups of six or more people. If your group is less than six people, we recommend attending the free, guided tour offered every Saturday at 10:30 am. Tours usually last between forty-five and seventy-five minutes.

“Tucker Box Tours” are available for groups of six to fifteen people, and include a guided tour of the current exhibitions followed by lunch in the gallery. The cost is $10.00 per person and includes a boxed lunch and a beverage.
