Families & Community

The Berman Museum firmly believes that art is for everyone regardless of age, education, or ability. The museum is a place for all local and global community members to learn about and engage with art.

Explore the Museum

Exhibitions

There are two ways to explore the indoor exhibitions at the Berman Museum: self-led tours or guided tours.

Self-led tours provide the flexibility of navigating the galleries at your own pace and do not require advance notice. You are welcome to visit any time during the museum’s open hours: 11 am to 4 pm, Tuesday through Sunday.

Guided tours offer a fuller understanding of the exhibitions, as guides can answer questions and share information not available on the gallery walls. 

Self-led tours and guided tours are free, but support is always welcome.

Outdoor sculpture collection

The Berman Outdoor Sculpture Collection is made up of almost 80 pieces located throughout the Ursinus College campus. Visitors are welcome to roam the grounds to explore the collection. Those who prefer more direction can use our easy or challenging scavenger hunt to discover the most iconic sculptures.

Scavenger hunts are available for download here. If you do not have a printer, feel free to request a copy of the scavenger hunts from the front desk.

Guided tours of the outdoor sculpture collection are available during special events like Family Weekend and Homecoming. Contact Betsy Witt, Operations Manager, for upcoming outdoor tour dates, or to schedule your own tour.

Community Events

Art-making activities

The Berman Museum hosts art-making activities for all ages to connect with the community and encourage creative expression. Recent activities have included collage nights, screen-printing, and natural dye workshops. These events are always free.

Speakers

The Berman Museum regularly brings in guest speakers to complement the messaging of current exhibitions. Faculty, curators, activists, and artists bring valuable insights to help the community learn more about art. All speaker events are free and open to the public.
