Museum Tours

Student Gallery Guides at the Rose Art Museum are trained in the theory and practice of visual thinking strategies, an educational approach which encourages engaged, participatory conversation rooted in close looking.

For their tours, student guides select three to four works on view and spend roughly 15 minutes per piece facilitating the viewers’ responses, synthesizing experiential observation into a group dialog that is inevitably rich and challenging. Rather than telling viewers what they should see or think, our guides are trained to help visitors to discover what they are capable of finding in a work of art — we want to know what you see.

As a university museum, the Rose is committed to expanding the way that students interact with works of art, and a large part of that mission is empowering viewers to open their minds to what an artwork is able to reveal. Although this program is designed with Brandeis student groups in mind, we welcome viewers of all ages to learn and grow through looking.

The Rose does not offer tours for groups of fewer than 10 people.

Advance reservations are required for all tours.
Requests should be made at least four weeks in advance of your visit.
