The Museum is Open
- Enjoy a contactless visit. Pre-pay online or at the Museum.
- Masks are required for Museum entry (including staff) and must be worn throughout your visit. If you do not have a mask, or your mask becomes damaged during your visit, a basic surgical mask will be provided.
- Guests are asked to sanitize hands upon entering.
- Temperature screening is required for Museum entry. Our temperature screening is no-touch, staff will be nearby to guide you. If you register a temperature of 100.4 or higher, you will be asked to wait a minute before completing the temperature screening again. If you are still registering a temperature of 100.4 or higher, you and your entire party will not be permitted to continue through the Museum.
- Please maintain at least 6 feet (2 meters) distance between yourself and other Museum visitors whenever possible.
- High-touch areas will be cleaned throughout the day, and visitors will find several hand-sanitizing stations placed conveniently around the Museum.
- A route through the galleries has been created to make your experience as enjoyable as possible and avoid crowding in smaller spaces. Following the route, which is marked by easy-to-follow signage throughout the Museum, encourages social distancing and ensures you have time to enjoy all the spaces and exhibitions throughout the building.
- Group tours will not be offered until further notice. If a large group visits the Museum, we may ask you to separate into smaller groups to encourage social distancing and make it easier to navigate other visitors in the Museum.
- Elevator access is available. Please use the elevator with your immediate party only.
