Scheduling: Your group is welcome to tour the museum with two weeks of advance notice. Groups are welcome Wednesday through Saturday during regularly scheduled hours.

Group Size: The Museum has limited gallery capacity. Our staff reserves the right to limit access when demand becomes too high for reasonable safety or visitor comfort, so please schedule your group tour with as much advanced notice as possible.
