SELF-GUIDED INDIVIDUAL & FAMILY MUSEUM EXPERIENCESThe Museum is open to the public during regular hours and admission is FREE. Anyone is welcome to stop by to view the collection and Gallery Guides are available at the front desk.
A self-guided visit is also a great way for families with children of all ages to explore the collection. Families can guide children through the museum using a variety of activities that we have available at the front desk such as scavenger hunts for the younger children and more in depth Young Viewer Guides for older children. (If you are a group of 10 or more please see our Group Tour options, below.)
