Because nothing is more important than your safety, we’re requiring visitors to preregister for timed tickets so we can limit gallery capacity.

This will allow families to follow social distancing recommendations and our staff to efficiently deep clean all hands-on interactives. You can enjoy a 45-minute time slot with no more than 10 visitors in the space. Time slots are available at 9:15 a.m., 10:15 a.m., 11:15 a.m., 12:15 p.m., 1:15 p.m., 2:15 p.m., 3:15 p.m. and 4:15 p.m. If you do not show within 15 minutes of your start time, your ticket may be relinquished to someone else.
