When planning your visit, please remember:
  • We have limited our daily ticket reservations to less than 50% of maximum building capacity to allow for social distancing for you and your family throughout the museum.
  • Advance tickets encouraged. Consider weekdays for lighter attendance. Traditionally, Monday-Wednesday are lower-visited days.
  • Under Marion County Order and in collaboration with an advisory council of scientists, physicians, and public health officials, the museum requires face masks for all UNVACCINATED visitors 2 years and older. We will allow for medical exceptions for children. Face coverings must cover the nose and mouth at all times.
  • Masks are not required outdoors.
  • We’re reopening many of our hands-on interactives throughout the month of June. Click here for the schedule.
