Meet Me at the Museum is an organization that seeks to make elementary school field trips to New York City museums as educational and meaningful as possible. We offer free, personalized tours of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Bronx Museum of the Arts, and the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum. By developing tours that are relevant to what each class is focusing on in their current classroom curriculum, students feel engaged and excited by museums and their content. Enthusiastic college students lead each tour, passing their love for art onto each new class.
Our tours at the Metropolitan Museum of Art focus on various themes including human rights, American history, and children of the past and other cultures.
The Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum offers students unique interactive opportunities to learn about art and design.
