How to plan a great visit

We look forward to your visit! To get the most out of your Museum experience, we suggest allowing at least 1.5 to 2 hours of time for your visit. Admission is valid all day! You are welcome to stay and play as long as you want or return after lunch or naptime. Stop by the Front Desk to get a hand stamp for re-admission! The Museum is generally busier in the mornings than the afternoons. If you’re looking for a quieter time, we suggest visiting after 12pm. Here are a few other helpful tips:
  • Bring your own lunch or snack to have in our indoor snack area or outdoor patio.
  • Toddler Hour (for children ages 5 and under) is on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings from 9am-10am.
  • Call ahead to find out what activities, events or field trips are scheduled for the day.
