The Louisiana Art and Science Museum will create new digital tours for its Solar System gallery, Ancient Egypt gallery, and Our Louisiana main art gallery, which will be an integral part of the museum's in-person guided tour and guided exploration programs for kindergarten through 12th-grade students. Each digital tour will feature a gallery tour guided by staff content experts alongside collaborating content experts, in addition to close-up investigations of relevant objects from the museum's collection. After the digital tour presentation, docents will facilitate a guided discussion and investigation of the gallery, along with a hands-on activity for students participating in guided exploration programs. The museum also will develop a new volunteer docent program. This project will enhance the museum's capacity to deliver interpretation-driven, docent-guided programs for students, especially during the museum's recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
