Are you open Wednesday nights?

Yes! We are open Wednesday nights until 9 p.m. 

What if I arrive earlier or later than my reserved ticket time?

Please arrive within 30 minutes after your selected arrival time. If you arrive before your reserved time and we are near capacity in the galleries, we ask that you wait in your vehicle or outside the building until your designated arrival time. If capacity has not yet been reached and you would prefer to enter sooner, our staff will try to accommodate you. 

If you miss your reserved time, our staff will try to fit you in at the next available time that day. Please note, the Museum closes at 5 p.m. each day and 9 p.m. on Wednesday. We recommend arriving no later than 4 p.m. or 8 p.m.
