Guided Museum Experiences

We welcome undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students from all fields of study and interests to Poster House. Step into our galleries or enter our virtual spaces to expand your learning experience beyond the classroom and connect with a community of emerging designers, historians, and museum professionals. Our tours are interactive, design-focused experiences that can be tailored to your course’s curricular goals and expectations. Poster House tours are able to connect to a variety of courses ranging from design to world history, STEAM to printmaking. They are also able to be used as supplemental learning experiences for your class.

You may choose from our prepared list of virtual tours, experience one of our on-site exhibitions, or contact us to discuss creating a custom tour based on a specific area of interest or curricular connection.
