Teacher-Led Visits at The Ringling
Bring your students to visit The Ringling and use the museum as your classroom for the day! Teacher-led visits offer teachers the opportunity to take a FREE field trip to the various venues on campus including the Museum of Art, Circus Museum and Bayfront Gardens. Museum educators do not facilitate teacher-led visits, allowing teachers the flexibility to engage with The Ringling’s collections however you’d like. We do provide teacher resources below to help you guide your students through the museum.
Please note: Due to Covid restrictions Ca' d'Zan is not available for student walk-through visits for the Fall 2021 semester.
A complimentary planning visit to The Ringling is available to all educators prior to bringing their class on a free field trip. To reserve your complimentary planning visit ticket, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the preferred date of your planning visit.
Teacher-Led Visit requests must be received at least two weeks prior to your anticipated visit date. Please allow 3-5 business days for education to confirm your Teacher-Led Visit booking. Some dates may not be available, and visits confirmed only when you receive an emailed confirmation from the education department.
