Education Department

The Museum’s Education Department presents a number of innovative programs designed to bring art and people together to explore the region’s rich and varied cultural identities, including docent tours, workshops and outreach programs.

The Education Department also offers many opportunities to become involved with the Museum on a deeper level. If you’d to help others “See the South” as a museum docent or teen docent, or if you’re a teacher looking to schedule a tour of the museum for your class, the Education department is here to help. The Ogden Museum regularly hosts Girl Scout Troops of all ages as they continue their quest to earn merit badges. Contact us to book a Girl Scout Troop Tour and art activity.

We’re also happy to book adult group tours.

Want to experience what it’s like to work in a museum? The Ogden Museum is always accepting applications for enthusiastic and qualified interns to share their love for the arts with others.

For more information on this unique opportunity to “See the South” or for any questions about Education contact Ellen Balkin, Education Manager, at or 504.539.9608.
