Reservations are required for self-guided groups, including UW classes. Please contact us four weeks in advance at or or calling 206.221.4980 to request a tour date and time. The Henry requests groups provide a tour leader and stay together in the museum. The education staff is available to provide tour guidance and requires teachers to preview the exhibitions in preparation for their tours. Teachers are also encouraged to attend an Educator Workshop offered at the Henry for more information on current exhibitions and approaches. Any additional activities must be approved in advance with the education staff.
The Henry is accessible to all students. Free admission for students from kindergarten through university encourages exploration individually, with family, or in a group. In addition, University of Washington faculty and staff and Henry members are admitted free. High school and college students are requested to present student identification. There are no fees for tours for school-aged groups and university groups.
Educational public programs at the Henry Art Gallery are made possible with generous support from 4Culture/King County Lodging Tax Fund, the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, ArtsFund, The Boeing Company, and the Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs.
