The Museum is open!


Our top priority is the health of visitors, employees, and the community at large. We know that museums are trusted institutions, and we take those responsibilities seriously.


We have developed COVID-19 protocols with input from colleagues and experts across the country, including the American Alliance of Museums, the Southeastern Museums Conference, private sector partners, and public health officials.






To help facilitate social distancing, we are implementing limited occupancy. You may pre-purchase Museum tickets in advance to guarantee time slots, though tickets may also be purchased upon arrival. 

We encourage visitors and staff to make their own decisions regarding masks on site at the Museum, and will continue to design our spaces and programs in ways that allow for appropriate physical distancing. Museum policies will continue to be informed by the science and data, so they may be updated in the future. We will continue our efforts to deliver cultural experiences and community engagements in ways that are safe, rewarding, and healing.

Masks may be requested for certain events held in close proximity or at the request of visiting artists or lecturers.


"A must see at this destination, just as you would ... want to visit the Prado Museum if in Madrid, Spain, or see the World War II museum if in New Orleans..."

"Do not miss this treasure."

"One could spend hours there and still find more to discover."




How well-ventilated is the Museum?

Our state-of-the-art HVAC system is designed to continually keep air flowing for artistic preservation, which also helps keep air clean for you. The system is also equipped with an Ultraviolet Air Disinfection System for additional protection.


What if I am feeling under the weather?


If you are feeling ill or experiencing symptoms, have been diagnosed with COVID-19, or have had contact with someone who has been diagnosed, please visit us another time.


Will you accept cash?


While we prefer use of credit cards, touch-free payment, and advanced ticketing, we will accept cash as needed.


What if I’m not yet ready to visit in person?


If you aren’t ready to visit us just yet, we understand. We encourage you to engage withe the collection virtually in the meantime. We look forward to hosting you soon!
