What days of the week and hours is the museum open?

The museum will resume its regular hours of 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. daily, however, guests will be able to preselect a two-hour time window for their visit. Session times are: Morning Session 10 a.m. – 12 p.m., Mid-day Session 12:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m., and Afternoon Session: 3 p.m. – 5 p.m. The museum and store will completely close between each session to allow for thorough sanitization of our indoor and outdoor spaces.

The museum and store are closed New Years’ Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. We also close the day of our annual Bugeye Ball; this date changes from year to year and will be posted on our Calendar of Events (see link). We also close at 3 p.m. on Waterside Concert days for concert preparation. All closings are listed on our Calendar of Events and Plan Your Visit pages.
