School & Teacher Programs

At WAM, students and teachers are very important. We want every student to have an enriching and exciting museum visit. We want teachers to see the museum as an extended classroom to help meet state standards as well as build critical thinking  and visual literacy.

School Tours are free!

WAM is currently working on expanding school and teacher resources. The museum will be the place for excellent, exciting, and creative learning opportunities for K-12 students. Watch WAM grow. If you are a parent or teacher, we invite you to explore the museum's tour opportunities and schedule a tour.

Open the minds of our young learners with a visit to Wichita Art Museum. Bring your class for a museum tour to expand students' critical thinking and observation skills. Student tours are FREE!

100% Bus Reimbursement

Is the cost of the bus for the school field trip a problem? No longer! WAM provides 100% bus reimbursement to all schools in reasonable driving distance to the museum.

The 100% bus reimbursement is a project sponsored by WAM Contemporaries and their program Destination: WAM. Funding from the Contemporaries sponsors bus reimbursement to make school field trips free and provide transportation to WAM for area school children.

Self-Guided Tours

Teachers are always encouraged to lead their students on their own specialized tour of the museum, However, we are happy to work with teachers to help prepare worksheets or lesson plans for their students' visit. Leaders of self-guided tours still need to schedule their group at least one week ahead so that we can accommodate their needs and those of others who might be visiting.
