Education Mission
The Education Department at the Hispanic Society uses our collections as a foundation to foster meaningful engagement with the arts, literature and cultures of the Hispanic world through an array of programs for the diverse local, national, and international audiences that it serves. Every year we reach out to the widest possible audience through educational programs and activities that stimulate aesthetic and intellectual engagement, ignite creativity, and promote familiarity with Hispanic art and literature in its historical, cultural, and material contexts. All of our education and public programs are open free to the public.

School Visits
Visit the Hispanic Society Museum & Library, where your students will engage with the arts, literature and cultures of Spain, Latin America, and Portugal.

Our inquiry-driven programs support the Common Core State Standards and the NYC Department of Education Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in the Arts. Guided by experienced museum educators, students will explore works of art through close observation and group discussion.

Group Size
Guided tours may have no fewer than ten students and no more than 30 students, with one chaperone required for every ten students. The Museum reserves the right to limit the number of adult chaperones participating in school group guided visits.

Guided school visits are free.
