LOOKING TO SEE TOURS
THE LOOKING TO SEE program began in October 2010 to provide a structured guided tour program and educational outreach to the general public with a focus on our area’s K-12 students, after-school programs and youth. The Halsey is dedicated to increasing accessibility and community engagement, especially for youth and K-12 students. The free tours are led by knowledgeable and experienced guides and can be adapted to different time lengths, group sizes, and ages. Lessons within the galleries can be easily customized to follow specific classroom course objectives as the Looking to See tour guides are well versed in exhibition content and eager to collaborate with educators. More that 1,400 students have explored the Halsey Institute’s exhibitions with Looking to See Tour guides!
The program is open to elementary, middle, and high schools, church groups and other interested organizations. In addition to the tours being free, bus parking has been arranged with the Charleston Museum at no charge. Travel subsidies to help defray the cost of a field trip to the Halsey Institute are available to schools/groups that demonstrate an economical or geographic disadvantage.
