Self-Guided Visits
Stay cool as you enjoy the Museum’s indoor art galleries, and then turn it up a notch as you venture outdoors to explore the beautiful historic gardens along the St. Johns River. (You might even notice a dolphin or two!)
The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens offers self-guided visits that allow students to explore the beauty of original works of art and the historic gardens at their own pace. Art Connections, the Museum’s interactive gallery, has recently reopened following a COVID-friendly refresh to minimize touchpoints and provide a more socially distant space, while providing opportunities for close-looking and artful thinking. Visitors can practice these skills throughout the galleries and gardens and use to make deeper, more meaningful connections to the artworks. 
These skills and practices are also echoed in our scavenger hunts that are available for self-guided visits, which can be used to help navigate your groups through the Museum.
