Visitor Guidelines

Be Mindful
An art museum is a place for reflection; please engage in quiet discussion as other groups and individuals concentrate on the exhibitions
We want your visit to be enjoyable and rewarding. With your cooperation we can continue the tradition of welcoming all visitors who love the museum as much as we do!

Be Careful
• Admiring is encouraged, touching is not. Artworks, including outdoor sculpture, may not be handled or climbed for any reason!
• All large bags, packages, water bottles, coats and umbrellas must be left in the complimentary coat room upon entering Museum buildings.
