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.

COVID-19 protocols

  • All museum visitors over the age of 2 must wear a face covering while on CML premises.
  • Visitors will be temperature-screened at check-in. Any temperature registering greater than 100.4 will not be granted entry.
  • Hand sanitizing is required at entry.
  • All attendees must sign an online policy agreement prior to purchasing tickets. By completing your purchase of tickets, you are agreeing to CML’s COVID policies and admission waiver. Please click here to read the waiver.
