Classes and workshops

The museum hosts a variety of classes and workshops throughout the year for all ages.

Public programs

Public programs offer rich and enjoyable leisure time activities. Many are related to temporary exhibitions or works of art in the permanent collections; others make links to related art forms such as music, poetry, or film. All celebrate creativity and most are free.


The museum offers tours for children, students, and adults of the permanent art collection and temporary exhibitions. In order to secure a desired time for a tour and ensure a learning experience, we encourage groups to schedule their tours at least one month in advance by calling 785.532.7718 or emailing the senior educator. Every effort will be made to accommodate all requests.

The museum has a number of educational resources that can be used in the museum while others are available for loan to schools, early childhood programs, social service organizations, and home school groups.
