Enjoy a complimentary guided tour of the Zanesville Museum of Art!

Docent-led tours present a rich visual arts experience for all including school groups, adults, families, and those with accessibility needs. Led by our well-trained volunteer docents or museum tour guides, they bring the museum to life by exploring our rich permanent collection and special exhibitions.

View works from ancient Egypt and Rome, explore paintings by Peter Paul Rubens, William Merritt Chase, or Grandma Moses, or learn more about Zanesville—once the “Pottery Capital of the World” in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries—by touring our rich and diverse American Art Pottery collection.
