Planning Tips:

If you are looking to bring your child to the museum when it is least crowded, here are a few suggestions:

  • The quietest times during the school year are weekday afternoons.
  • Sunny weekends during the summer are usually less crowded.
  • Nice weather weekends during the fall and spring are quieter times as well. The museum is most crowded during school breaks and inclement weather days.

Thank you for helping to keep our children safe.
