Class visit during 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 on weekday mornings during the academic year (September–April). Limited availability during the summer. To assist the Mead’s staff in preparing for guided tours, we request as much advance notice as possible, ideally two weeks.

Due to Amherst College's Commencement and Reunion, the Mead will not be able to offer guided group tours from May 17 to May 26. Please get in touch if you'd like to schedule a summer tour in June or July! 

Group admission to the museum and its exhibitions is always free of charge. To schedule your group for a self-guided visit or a guided tour, please fill out and submit the form below or email Keely Sarr,

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