Please help us to protect the artifacts on display for generations to come. Here are some tips for your visit:

Keep hands to yourself and off the artifacts and cases.
Your fingers cause immediate damage, leaving oils and dirt behind.

Food and drink stay out of the galleries.
Anything that could spill, leak, crumble, stick, or stain needs to remain out of the galleries. You are welcome to eat in the Atrium.

Store coats, backpacks, big bags, and umbrellas.
Anything carried on your person can accidentally bump or break artifacts as you explore. Please keep any items listed above in our coat room.

Personal, flash-free photos are usually encouraged.
We welcome photography, without flash or bright light, for personal use. Photo shoots and commercial use require advance approval. (Some exhibitions may have additional limitations.)

Tripods, selfie sticks, and drones are not allowed.
Safe visitors and safe artifacts are more important than great photos. Selfie sticks and autonomous or radio-controlled devices are not permitted anywhere in the Museum. Tripods require special arrangements.
