Did you know that DAI’s education department was established in 1933? Art education has been an integral part of the DAI since the museum’s early days and tours for adults and youth have been provided since the 1930s.
The DAI’s Museum Guide program was established in the 1960s, and tour offerings continued to expand. Traditional guided tours have also been supplemented by audio tours and interactive web-based tours such as What Is a Masterpiece?.
The museum has many tours available and an amazing corps of Museum Guides who deliver them. Tours cover many different topics and are engaging for groups of all ages.
The Dayton Art Institute’s tour program changes lives for thousands of students each year by sharing compelling stories that bring art to life, as well as hands-on workshops that reinforce lessons in culture and history, along with greater understanding of the materials used and artists’ techniques for creating the work they have seen.
