Visitor Policy

To enhance the experience of all guests and to protect our collections on display, please note the following policies:

  • No food or drinks allowed in the Main Gallery, the Flowerdew Hundred Gallery, or the Declaring Independence Gallery
  • Photography is permitted for personal, noncommercial use only. Flash photography, tripods, and other photographic equipment, including selfie-sticks, are not permitted in any exhibition gallery.
  • Low light levels in the exhibition galleries protect the unique materials on display from fading and discoloration. Light damage is both cumulative and permanent, and we strive to balance an enjoyable experience for our visitors with conditions that allow us to preserve our collections for generations.

Please note: large print versions of exhibition text are available in each gallery. We appreciate your participation in the care of our collections and hope you enjoy your visit.
