When children, look carefully, and engage with works of art, they find that art can possess multiple layers of meaning. The Norton offers a wide range of themed tours created specifically for students in grades K–12. Tours have accompanying lesson plans that are designed to meet Florida State Standards and can be completed in the classroom before or after Museum visits. Lesson plans and information about school tours are available at To schedule a tour, call Marcy Koch, Associate Curator of Education at (561) 832-5196 x1198, or use the online contact form.
