Plan a Field Trip
When planning a trip to the Dixon with your students you will have many options. The Dixon offers tours for both galleries and/or gardens. Please keep in mind that the number of students will play a big part in what type of tour is best for your group.
Art to Grow
The colorful Art to Grow van and its
talented and creative instructors visit schools and other organizations
bringing art and nature to your learning space.
Students in Grades pre K-5 can experience the museum’s permanent collection, traveling exhibitions and gardens while fulfilling the Tennessee Curriculum Standards.
Scholarship and Bus Funding
The Dixon Express is a resource for Shelby County Schools educators and their students. Groups planning to visit the Dixon during the school year can apply to receive funding for student transportation for one visit.
