Your Health & Safety

Before your visit, please purchase a timed ticket and read on so that you are prepared to enjoy a safe visit to the museum.


  All Visitors Must Reserve a Timed Ticket

For your safety and comfort, we’re limiting admissions to our museums through timed ticketing so that the number of visitors will never exceed 10% of building capacity at any given time. Members must also reserve their free timed tickets in advance.

  We’re All Wearing Masks

We ask that all visitors over the age of two wear masks that cover their mouth and nose. All museum staff and volunteers will be wearing masks, too.

If you cannot wear a mask for medical reasons, please let our Visitor Services staff know.

  Let’s Maintain a Safe Distance

When you visit the museum, you’ll see signs reminding you to maintain a safe social distance. Please follow these and other directional signs and remember to give everyone enough space—at least six feet between your group and others around you!

  Keep Your Hands Clean

Please plan to wash your hands often and make good use of the many hand-sanitizer dispensers that you’ll find throughout our museum spaces. We are regularly disinfecting common touch points and using enhancing cleaning procedures throughout our facilities.

  Designated Hours for High-Risk Visitors

If you consider yourself high-risk due to age (65+) or a medical condition, we have designated a time for you to visit: Wednesdays, 10 a.m.-noon.
