Timed General Admission

To control museum capacity we will be offering 500 daily tickets. There are two time periods to manage the daily flow of guests:

  • Morning, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
  • Afternoon, 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.

If you currently hold a pre-purchased Admission ticket that is still valid, those tickets will be honored on a space-available basis on the day of attendance.

To ensure the health and safety of our guests and staff, we have temporarily suspended the following:

  • Interactive displays in exhibit spaces
  • Guided tours in Hawaiian Hall
  • Hot Spot demonstrations in the Science Adventure Center
  • On-site shows in the Planetarium
Senior 65+
Youth 4 — 17
