Planning Your Museum Visit

1.

Collections & Exhibit Dates

Before leaving home, double-check the museum website for new exhibits, collections or programs, because some of the collections are on display for limited engagements. It’s always  good practice to confirm how long an exhibit will be showing, and associated hours.
2.

Day's Endurance

After you’ve selected a museum or collection, consider how long you will want to be there.  Setting a “goldilocks” (just-right) period of time for your visit is your goal.  A suggested time frame of between 90 minutes and 2 hours is a sweet spot for many people.  You could stay longer, but keeping it fun and not wearing-out your family or yourself is optimum.

Coming back for a second viewing or purchasing a membership or pass are other options.

3.

Tickets, Memberships & Downloads

Paper or digital tickets can be purchased on many museum websites. You are also offered the choice to reserve tickets for coming attractions.  Some museums utilize a will-call service after purchase and others will issue a digital ticket that can be scanned. To enhance your in-gallery experience, many galleries have developed an app to experience VR or audio tours.
