Visit BAM

The Boise Art Museum offers free opportunities for schools to explore BAM’s permanent collection and featured exhibitions through the Free School Tour Program and Self-Guided Visits.

Free School Tour Program.
This program is created by a professional education team in conjunction with a volunteer committee of practicing classroom teachers. Programs are customized to fit students’ grade levels and presented by museum-trained BAM docents and instructors. Thematic programs for Pre-K through high school students correspond to state standards and engage students in participatory discussions and hands-on activities. Students explore the visual arts through exhibitions, studio art projects and curricular connections such as language arts, social studies, math and science.
