Help preserve our collection by adhering to these guidelines:
- Umbrellas, bags, and items over 11×16 inches can damage artworks and therefore, are not permitted in the galleries. Backpacks are permitted for medical purposes only. Please check them in lockers or ask the admission desk where oversized items may be stored. Security officers reserve the right to inspect all bags, boxes, or packages upon entry and exit.
- Please do not touch any artwork unless instructed to do so—even a gentle touch can damage the art.
- Be sure to maintain a safe distance from all paintings, sculptures, and any other artworks. Two feet is recommended.
Pencils and small sketch pads are permitted in the museum galleries.
No weapons, firearms, or hazardous materials are permitted on museum property. City ordinance prohibits smoking, including vapor devices, inside the museum and within 5 feet of entrances.
