Please remind your family of Museum Manners:
Visitors are always welcome to tour the exhibitions independently. Groups of ten or more are, however, requested to schedule their visit at least one week in advance by calling the Museum of Art and Archaeology at 573-882-3591. Gallery Guides for self-led tours can be found at the information desk at the entrance to the upstairs galleries.
Please plan ahead. Reservations are required for all group tours including self-led tours of ten or more.
Parents and caregivers and their children are invited to schedule a Flashlight Tour at the Museum of Art and Archaeology. Flashlight tours are a unique, fun and exciting way to experience the Museum. With flashlights and clue sheets in hand, visitors carefully explore a darkened gallery for artifacts. Flashlights will be provided, although you are welcome to bring your own. After sufficient exploration time, visitors regroup to confirm their findings while learning about and discussing didactic information about those objects.
Flashlight Tours are free and ideal for preschoolers through fifth grade. To schedule a Flashlight Tour for a group of 10 or more, contact the Museum at 573-882-3591.
Scheduled events at the Museum of Art and Archaeology are listed on the Calendar. Events are open to the public and free, unless otherwise noted.
