Lock it Up

Lockers are available in the main lobby to store your valuables and large items, including back packs, bags, and water bottles.

Look – but don’t touch!

Art work and artifacts are more fragile than they look. Moisture from your hands, damage from jewelry, and many other factors may harm items. No food or drinks are allowed in the galleries.

ADA — for visitors with disabilities

We can provide a wheelchair, listening assisted device, and have accessible bathroom facilities. Ask if you require assistance.
