School Group Tours

Lan Su is a multi-sensory learning experience for students studying Chinese history, culture, art, literature, philosophy, international relations, and Portland’s diverse community. Let us customize a tour that is perfect for your class. School tours are 30-45 minutes in length depending upon grade level and led by trained volunteers skilled at working with youth. Teachers may also arrange for an additional 15-20 minute quiet activity.

You qualify for the school group rate if you:

  • Are a pre-K or K-12th grade public or private school
  • Schedule your tour at least two weeks in advance
  • Have at least 15 students and chaperones in your group
  • Ensure that youth are chaperoned at all times while in the garden

School Group Rate
