College Programs

For the health and safety of visitors and staff, Winterthur’s on-site school programs are suspended until further notice. We are currently offering these virtual school programs.

library research

Winterthur’s museum and library collections allow students to explore the social, political, intellectual, and cultural history of the seventeenth through the early twentieth centuries. Our rich resources and setting also make Winterthur a fabulous place to visit if your focus is architecture, craftsmanship, horticulture, interior design, set design, and even American literature (like Winterthur, Jay Gatsby’s home included period settings).

Select a house tour from our current offerings, or contact our staff to arrange an experience that is customized to meet your curriculum needs. All tickets include a garden tram ride (when available) and access to the garden and galleries (including changing exhibitions).

Option 3: Two-hour tour of your choice, and additional custom experiences, such as a look at select library resources or a tour of the conservation labs. $35 per person, available Tuesday-Friday.
