When You Visit the Museum

When you visit the Museum, you will play a role in creating a safe place for everyone to enjoy. We are asking guests to take the following steps to help protect themselves and ensure the best possible experience for everyone: 

  • Masks are encouraged for everyone visiting the Museum
  • Stay home and enjoy a Museum visit another day if you are not feeling well. 


Guests and Members are strongly encouraged to purchase tickets in advance online. A separate, timed ticket is also required for all guests for the Planetarium and some temporary exhibitions.  

Tickets will be emailed to you. Simply pull up your ticket(s) on your smartphone device upon arrival so that Museum staff can scan it upon entry. This method is strongly encouraged; however, you may bring a printed copy of your ticket.
