For each exhibition, Laguna Art Museum offers free interactive school tours for all grade levels.* Tours are the beginning of a journey toward a life-long love of art and museums!
The museum also offers special third and fourth grade tours that are connected to the local and state history curriculum. This ninety-minute program is divided into two sessions: one session is spent with an artist in neighboring Heisler Park, and the other session is spent touring the current exhibition inside the museum. Special third and fourth grade tours are offered in March, April, and May and are by appointment only.
Laguna Art Museum’s regular one-hour school tours are led by trained docents and are designed to introduce students to the museum experience. Volunteer docents consult closely with teachers to ensure that thematic tours enhance, support, and extend the classroom learning and curriculum objectives. These tours are offered throughout the year and are by appointment only.
- Encourage careful observation of art

“The docent program at the Laguna Art Museum is unsurpassed in Orange County.”
~ Mary Chabre (volunteer art teacher at Our Lady Queen of Angels in Santa Ana)
