Plan Your Visit

We encourage visitors and members to reserve tickets online. Tickets are sold by entry time and there are a limited number of tickets available per hour. Reserving online guarantees your spot. 

For free passes, reciprocal discounts, Museums for All, and Blue Star Museums, instead of reserving tickets, simply come to the museum with the pass or appropriate proof of discount status.

Masks are required for all visitors ages 2 and up. We appreciate your cooperation with our health and safety protocols to ensure a safe experience for everyone.
