Overview of Educational Programs


The Booth Museum offers a number of educational opportunities for adults. In addition to the Museum’s annual events, we offer group tours, lectures each month during Art for Lunch and on the Third Thursday evening, and a daily Highlights tour of the Museum.


The Booth Museum is a great place for children. Through a variety of programming, tours and activities even the Museum’s youngest visitors will enjoy their visit. From school tours and summer day camps to Sagebrush Ranch, Children’s Saturday and the Annual Literary Competition, children can learn about art, the West, the Civil War, and the United States Presidents. The Museum even offers special activities online and in the Museum to help make the most of your child’s visit to the Museum.
