As of August 6, 2021, the museum will be open Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from noon to 8 pm, and Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am to 5 pm. Admission is free. To avoid overcrowding, groups of people entering together should consist of no more than five friends or family members. The overall capacity of the museum has been reduced to 50%.

Additional safety measures include hand sanitizer stations, and the removal of high-touch areas such as interactive displays, seating, and brochure kiosks. It is mandatory that all visitors, regardless of their vaccination status, wear a face mask while in the museum. All visitors are requested to review the latest safety guidelines and protocols, available here
