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 mornings during the academic year (September–May). Limited availability during summer months and in January. 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 or the Emily Dickinson Museum).
To assist the Mead’s staff in preparing for guided tours, we require at least two weeks notice.
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.
If you are a Five College faculty member planning a class visit, please see College Faculty.
