Timed General Admission: 

  • To control museum capacity, we will be offering 1,000 daily tickets. 
  • Check-in time slots starting at 9 a.m.and last check-in at 4 p.m. will manage the flow of guests during the day.  
  • If you currently hold a General Admission ticket or pre-paid voucher such as a Groupon that is still valid, those tickets will be honored on a space-available basis on the day of attendance. On holidays and weekends, we suggest calling ahead to make sure space is available. 
  • Members are encouraged to reserve FREE Timed General Admission tickets in advance, to minimize contact with staff.
