Mead Reimagined Opening

The Mead offers two types of group visits:

  • Self-guided visit: Available to all groups year-round during the museum's open hours.
  • Guided tour: Available Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. November–May. Availability is limited during summer months and in January. Guided tours require at least two weeks notice for museum staff to adequately prepare.

For groups of 30 or more, please schedule more than one tour. We encourage visiting schools to rotate larger groups between the Mead and another activity at Amherst College, such as a visit to the Beneski Museum of Natural History, Bassett Planetarium or the Emily Dickinson Museum.

If you are a Five College faculty member planning a class visit, please see College Faculty.
