WinterBehind the Scenes: A Teen Course
How does a museum operate? This exciting new program gives high schoolers an exclusive glimpse into the history and inner workings of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Over the course of five weeks, students explore the museum's beginnings, its evolving collection, and its special exhibitions with museum insiders like curators, conservators, and educators. By visiting the galleries after hours and participating in brief lectures and group discussions, students gain a deeper understanding of how this unique institution functions and what happens behind closed doors.
For grades 9–12.
