Why can’t we touch the art in the Museum?
While the sculptures look very durable, our hands and fingertips contain oils that leave a dirty residue, which causes damage to the art. Attendants at the front desk will give your child a sticker to remind them to look with their eyes and never with their hands.
Can I bring a stroller into the galleries?
Yes, strollers for young children are encouraged. We occasionally have exhibitions that prohibit strollers if the artwork is too sensitive.
Is there a place to eat at the Museum?
The Museum has a small cafe that offers a few kid-friendly options. Food and drink are not permitted in the galleries or the garden.
Are there changing tables at the Museum?
Yes, changing tables are available in family-friendly restrooms.
Can I take photos of my family at the Museum?
Absolutely, photography without a flash is encouraged. However, the Museum does not allow commercial shoots.
Can we draw in the galleries?
Yes, drawing in the galleries with graphite or colored pencils is encouraged. Pens are not allowed in the galleries.
