how does this work?

  • Timed tickets have been set-up to allow a limited number of guests in the building each hour based on the average time a visitor typically enjoys the museum. We ask that all guests plan to arrive no later than 30 minutes following the time on your ticket. Early entry will not be permitted.
  • Guests are welcome to enjoy the museum at their own pace. You will not be restricted to a time limit.
  • If you miss your entry time slot, please contact Visitor Services to exchange your tickets for a future date and time. Refunds will not be allowed for missed entry times.
