Scouts

scout

 

We have a variety of programs for scouts depending on the ages of your scouts, if a particular culture or part of the world strikes your curiosity, or if you are interested in working toward a specific badge. Visit the Bowers Museum or Kidseum for a guided tour and art project, or work with us to create a customized museum or art class experience to meet specific badge requirements!


SCHEDULING

We require scheduling your visit at least 2 weeks before your desired visit date.

Scout tours can be scheduled starting as early as 9:30am Tuesday through Friday,
and select Saturdays and Sundays starting as early as 11am at the Bowers or 10am at Kidseum, with the last available tour starting at 2pm.

We recommend allowing at least 2 ½ hours for check-in, tour, break, and art project.

We can serve a minimum of 10 scouts, and a maximum of 75 scouts per visit.
Groups larger than 75 scouts will be asked to split their visit across separate dates.

Scout Tours at the Bowers Museum

Tours for scouts are available at the Bowers Museum, and can be paired with an art project related to the gallery you tour.  Any tours or art projects are customizable to focus on a specific culture, age level of your scouts, or to meet your badge-earning requirements.

The Bowers Museum is now featuring the newly extended exhibition, Endurance: The Antarctic Legacy of Sir Ernest Shackleton and Frank Hurley through May 27, 2018. Some of our most popular permanent galleries at the Bowers Museum that would be appropriate for scouts of any age level are First Californians, California Bounty: Image and Identity, and Ancient Arts of China.
