Visiting the Museum Learning Center

Class and Group Visits

Educators of all grade, college, and graduate levels and adult group coordinators are invited to arrange visits to see works from the Addison’s collection. We encourage MLC visits to be organized as a complement to the viewing of one or more current exhibitions.

If you would like ideas for creating a list of works that corresponds to your group’s particular interests, please contact the education department.

Arranging a Class or Group Visit to the MLC:
• Identify themes or specific works that you are interested in exploring in the MLC by browsing the MLC Portfolio Guides or the Addison Collections Database.
• Select a few possible dates and times to visit, Tuesday-Friday, 8am-3pm (groups of 25 or more will be split into two groups).
• AT LEAST TWO WEEKS IN ADVANCE and preferably more to assure a reservation, contact the education department.
