The ideal time to have a party is when we are closed to the public and you have the entire museum to share with your guests. Check our calendar for member only hours or join our e-news for regular updates.

Please Note:

  • We try to remain open during all weather conditions.
  • We are also closed on some (but not all!) holidays - please check the calendar for details.
  • Our exhibits are designed for children age six and under.

Visitation Advisory

During our winter hours when we are open until 5pm, we strongly encourage you to visit with your children age 6 and older after 1pm. However, children of all ages are encouraged to attend Museum special family events. Children under 6 years of age are welcome anytime.

*Parents who visit with children who are sick will be asked to leave.

Thank you for your consideration!
