Upcoming Excursions

Enjoy exciting day trips and overnight adventures to arts and cultural events throughout the year!

For our upcoming bus excursions, the NIU Art Museum will be using Coach USA/Van Galder buses. Coach USA/Van Galder buses include large, comfortable reclining seats, Wi-Fi and restroom, and they undergo intensive cleaning and sanitation after each trip, featuring filtration of the onboard air every two minutes and a complete replacement with fresh outside air every ten minutes. Van Galder bus drivers participate in a Greenroad program gaining points for conscientious environmental driving practices. For van excursions, the Art Museum will be using minivans provided by NIU transportation services.


Payment may be made with check, cash or credit card, 815-753-1936.

The NIU Art Museum office will be open Tuesday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is located on the first floor, west end of Altgeld Hall behind stairwell C.

Payment must be made in advance to guarantee your seat on the bus. NIU Art Museum members receive discounts on our bus trips as well as access to members' only trips.

Please note that all dates are subject to change and trips are added frequently throughout the year. Refunds cannot be granted after the registration deadline.

The Art Museum's Get-on-the-Bus trips should not be missed!
