Visitor Notices

Museums preserve and display their collections so that people can enjoy them. Please follow the rules below so that future generations may enjoy them as well.

Children 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult. 

NO FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY: The intensity of the light damages the art. Guests are welcome to take photographs for personal use throughout the Museum without the use of a flash, unless indicated by signage regarding specific works of art. Please do not use flashes, tripods or video cameras. For commercial photography, please inquire with Museum staff. 

DO NOT TOUCH THE COLLECTION: Our hands contain harmful oils that react to the surface of sculpture, furniture, and paintings. Those oils corrode the surfaces of objects and lessen the life expectancy of the art. 

DO NOT LEAN ON THE CASES OR GALLERY WALLS: This helps keep works of art hung on the walls or displayed in cases safe. 

NO FOOD, DRINK, OR GUM IS ALLOWED IN THE GALLERIES: For maintenance and security reasons, food and beverages are not allowed inside of the galleries. Both Museum's provide areas for eating and drinking. 

NO BACKPACKS, LARGE BAGS, UMBRELLAS, OR SELFIE STICKS IN THE GALLERIES: These objects can often accidently bump or scratch pieces from the collection. Allowances will be made for medical necessities. We advise leaving backpacks inside of your locked vehicle. 

CELL PHONES: As a courtesy to others, we ask that all visitors silence their cell phones.
