For more information and to book please fill out the form below and we will contact you within five business days of your submission to learn more about your group. Due to COVID-19 some options may be temporarily unavailable including guided-tours.

There are different ways for Pre-K – 12 groups to experience Grounds For Sculpture. Teachers may choose to self-guide with their students or to explore the grounds through a one-hour Guided Tour. Groups with advance reservations can visit GFS for a modest fee of $8 per student.

Pre-K – 12 groups are limited to 50 students per school per day. Workshops are also available on a limited basis. Due to the large number of requests we receive, scheduling a visit at least eight weeks in advance is highly recommended. All requests are subject to availability and capacity is limited.

GUIDED TOURS

Trained guides cover a select number of sculptures throughout the garden and may briefly introduce the works in the indoor galleries. Guided Tours are available at no additional cost to visiting school groups and are subject to availability.
