SCHOOL TOURS K-12

Savannah African Art Museum offers tours to students of all education levels. Each tour will focus on a theme based on the request of the faculty member leading the class. We have several different themes covered on tours such as, Leadership, Initiation, Problem Solving, Prestige, and Ancestry and Spirits. However, for specialized courses of study, a reflective theme may be requested and will be available upon docent availability.

Scheduling your tour must be done no sooner than 2 weeks from the date of your tour. Any unscheduled groups that arrive to the museum may not be able to be accommodated and will be turned away if other tours are booked.
