Useful tips to go over with your class or group before your trip to UCR ARTS.

  • If possible, leave coats, backpacks, and large bags at school or on the bus. They may not be taken into the galleries. They can be placed at the ticket desk before your tour begins. 
  • Please do not text or make phone calls during tours. 
  • Feel free to take photos but please turn off your flash. For the safety of the artworks, selfie sticks and tripods are not allowed. If you post your photos on social media, please use tag us using #ucrarts. 
  • Help us preserve the artworks and do not bring food or drinks into the museum, and please refrain from touching the artworks
  • Please do not lean on or against any structures, including sculptures, pedestals and walls. Our walls and pedestals are meant to hold artwork, not the weight of a person. This can be dangerous for the person and artwork. 
  • For your safety and the safety of the art, please do not run or jump in the galleries. 
  • Students and their chaperones must stay with their tour group and docent at all times during the tour. 
  • If you’re sketching or taking notes, please use pencils. Pens, markers, and paint can stain. You can borrow #2 pencils at the ticket desk. 
  • Chaperones, please take an active role in helping your students follow these guidelines. 
  • Have a good time!
