Museum Guidelines

Museum Guidelines

TAKE YOUR TIME

There‚Äôs no right way to see the museum—take your time and explore what calls to you.
KEEP YOUR DISTANCE

Please keep a safe distance between you and the works of art. Even clean hands leave oils behind.
HUNGRY?

Please keep food and drink out of the galleries. Visit Rozzelle Court Restaurant, the Creative Café, or have a picnic in the Sculpture Park.
LIGHTEN YOUR LOAD

Please check large bags FREE at Coat Check. Child carriers should be worn on chest.
BE INSPIRED

We like to create art, too! 24" x 36" or smaller sketchpads and pencils only. Painting in the museum needs prior approval and written permission.
TAKE MY PICTURE

Take pictures of the museum and most art! Please ask at the Info Desk about taking pictures in special exhibitions. Tripods and additional equipment require special permission. Professional portraits are only allowed in the Donald J. Hall Sculpture Park.
HOLD MY RING

Please turn all electronic devices to VIBRATE.
TAKE IT OUTSIDE

Please wait until you are outside to erupt into cartwheels of joy. Our Sculpture Park has 22 acres for you to run and play.
