Teaching beyond the classroom

As MassArt's teaching museum, MAAM is a critical extension of the classroom, a place where faculty and students can interact with contemporary art and learn more about the inspiration and artists behind the works on view.

Interested in bringing your class or group to MAAM? Choose from a self-guided or guided museum experience to meet your learning goals. A self-guided group visit allows you and your students to explore the museum independently at your leisure. During a guided group visit, a museum educator facilitates an experience with your class.


MAAM works with educators to enhance learning through contemporary art

  • We collaborate with faculty to produce exhibitions that complement and reflect the diversity of the MassArt curriculum and disciplines

  • We organize and co-sponsor events that promote interaction with our exhibitions

  • We provide customized group visits  with curators, educators, and exhibitions staff

  • We demonstrate how a museum works, including the professional practices that contribute to its success

  • We offer an open space for community dialogue and engagement

“The students were thrilled to observe and participate in the ceramics studio. The entire experience was engaging. We will be looking forward to returning in the spring!”
