Museum Rules

Our museum is 80 years old. Many things inside of our museum are much older. Help us take care of our museum so that it can be shared with many people.

  • Enjoy the colors, lines, and shapes. There’s a lot to look at!
  • Keep your hands close to you. Our hands have oils that can damage the artwork.
  • Listen to the sounds of our fountains and landscape.
  • Watch where you step. Our museum has 53 steps!
  • Stay together in a group. We have many rooms. We don’t want you to get lost!
  • Store bags and items in our storage bin. We want you to be comfortable.
  • Sit on the cushions and relax!
  • Drink water at our water stations.
  • Ask our guides questions or to take you to the bathroom.
  • Have fun!
