A Note about School Groups

The Museum is fortunate to host 45,000 school children every year. As a result, you may experience enthusiastic young learners during your visit. Many visitors enjoy the energy of school groups in the galleries.  However, if you wish to visit the Museum during a quieter time, the following days and times tend to be less busy. Wednesday evenings – we are open until 9 p.m., Monday – Friday after 2 p.m., and Sundays.
