What to Expect on a CAE Tour

CAE tours at the Martin Museum begin with a brief introduction to the Museum's history at Baylor and it's role as a part of the Department of Art and Art History. After the introduction, we will highlight information and guide you through the current exhibition(s). When applicable, the tours will include demonstrations to help you better understand the artwork you will be viewing.

Time constraints may not allow you to take in the exhibition(s) to its full extent. Our goal is to introduce you to the museum and opportunities that are available to you during your time at Baylor and beyond. We are always free. We hope you will visit us often and feel free to bring along friends and/or family members. Admission to the Museum is always free.

Museum Etiquette and Baylor COVID-19 safety practices:

Baylor Student Facemask Policy

Baylor University is committed to providing a safe educational environment for all students, faculty, and staff. In order to create the healthiest environment possible, students and instructors must properly wear face coverings over their mouths and noses while in Baylor buildings and while in the classroom. In addition, social distancing should be maintained within all classroom environments.

The Museum is considered a classroom environment for the purposes of CAE tours. Any student who does not bring a face covering or refuses to wear one will be dismissed from class and be considered absent. If a student who is not wearing face covering refuses to leave class, the instructor may dismiss in-person class for that day. Such a student will be subject to disciplinary action through the Student Code of Conduct. The Martin Museum should be considered a classroom space.

  • Removing your mask while in the museum:
    Any student who refuses to wear a mask for the duration of a Martin Museum CAE tour will be dismissed, and that student will be counted absent for that given tour and will not receive CAE credit. If the student refuses to leave the Martin Museum, an acceptable decision by a tour guide is to dismiss the tour for that day. Such a student will be subject to disciplinary action through the Student Code of Conduct.
  • Food and drinkia not allowed in the Martin Museum of Art.
  • Do not tourch the artwork.
  • Photography.When appropriate, students will be given a chance to take photographs at the end of the tour.
  • If at any time during an event a student is found being disruptive, they will be asked by an event sponsor to leave and will not receive CAE credit for the event. Visit the CAE Expected Conduct website for more information.
