Museum etiquette guidelines
Please help us protect the artwork we have on display by respecting these guidelines:
- Food and beverages (including water) must remain outside the gallery or may be left at the front reception desk.
- Please do not touch artwork, pedestals, or walls.
- Backpacks, portfolios, briefcases, large purses, and similar items must be left with the gallery attendant or museum staff upon entering the museum.
- Use only pencils for note taking and sketching in the galleries. Pens and other indelible marking instruments can be detrimental to artworks.
- Please check with museum staff regarding photography in the museum. Generally, photography is not allowed, but certain exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis. Flash photography is detrimental to many types of artworks and so is not permitted.
- Please be considerate of others, turn cell phones off or down while in the museum, and step outside the museum galleries to have telephone conversations.
- Please leave pets in a safe location outside of the building.
- Selfie sticks are prohibited
- Artwork should be viewed from 4 feet away
