MUSEUM HOURS & ADMISSION
The Museum announced its second phase of reopening, which restores community access to the Museum’s indoor galleries and exhibitions in a limited capacity, on July 21, 2020. This announcement follows the safe and successful first phase of reopening that began on June 20 with the historic riverfront gardens. The Museum will continue to limit daily capacity across the campus for the foreseeable future.
