General Policies

We’re here to help! Stop by the admissions desk in the courtyard if you need assistance. In addition, while our gallery attendants’ primary responsibility is to ensure the safety and security of the people and the art in the museums, they are also available to help with a question or to point you in the right direction.

Noncommercial photography and filming is permitted, except of works of art or exhibitions accompanied by a “no photo” icon. Use of flash, tripods, monopods, or camera extension poles is not permitted.

All bags are subject to inspection.

Please use the coatroom to check larger items, including umbrellas, briefcases, backpacks, and rigid baby carriers. Strollers are available at the admissions desk.

Please refrain from touching the art.

Pens, ink, and paint are not permitted. Pencils are available at the admissions desk.

Cell phone use in the galleries is restricted to accessing digital tools and digital records for objects on view. Phone conversations are limited to the courtyard and lower level lobby.

No food, beverages, or gum.
