During Your Visit: What You Can See

  • Traffic flow signs in the museum will provide one-way direction where it’s required, though you’ll not ever be rushed and can linger with a work that enchants you.

  • Group tours and workshops have been temporarily moved to a virtual format. 

  • Signage will help remind visitors about our Visitor Guidelines.
