Self-Guided Tours

Interested in bringing your class to the museum to explore on your own? You are certainly welcome to do so. The museum is free, and is open to the public Tuesday through Friday, 9 AM to 4 PM. Please contact the Education Department to reserve a time for your visit (contact info below). We frequently have scheduled tours in the museum, and we want to make sure there is room for everyone to see the artifacts and move safely through the galleries. Visit our Self-Guided Visits page for more information.

Please review our suggestions for parking and the rules of the museum prior to your visit.
