2021 | Virtual Visits

About the 2021 Virtual Visit Program

The museum has traditionally offered docent-led tours to schools within a 100-mile radius. With Covid-19 and recent closures, our program has expanded. The Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU will continue to offer visits in a virtual format for students through our partnership with the WSU Brelsford Visitor Center. To use this program, please arrange the details of your virtual visit here. Fill out the form on the visitor center website, and send it as directed. Once your tour is approved, the visitor center will notify the museum and will send you confirmation of your agenda along with your virtual visit date and time.

Zoom Visits With Museum Staff

With the new Virtual Visit program, the museum offers docent-led visits via zoom to teachers and classes in 20-30 minute segments. Often, a teacher will pair the lesson plan of a virtual museum exhibition with traditional subjects like: Math and Science, History and Social Studies, Art and Music, Health and Biology, or English and World Languages. This pairing makes for a well-rounded learning experience where classes can view the virtual exhibition content like a film or webinar; learn more through content links to outside websites; see the art on the museum’s exhibition website; and then schedule a zoom session with the museum staff for questions and live interaction. To learn more about which exhibitions pair well with various lesson plans, please feel free to reach out to our education coordinator Kristin Becker at
