Stay Home if Unwell

If you or anyone in your party is not feeling well, please stay home. Sick people should stay at home until at least 24 hours after they no longer have a fever or signs of a fever (without the use of fever-reducing medicine).

Respect Elevator/Escalator Usage

Please keep elevators open for visitors who are not able to use the stairs. If you are able to use stairs, please do so. Stairs are located throughout the Museum.
