You also can enter through the Sie Welcome Center. A bridge over 13th Avenue connects the buildings. Please bring your ticket (or have it displayed on your smartphone) to level 2 where the entrance to the exhibition is. Staff will get you checked in at the entry time noted on your ticket, and give you a sticker for the exhibition.


Wheelchairs, strollers, scooters, canes, and walkers are welcome in the museum. Wheelchairs and strollers may be borrowed for your visit by presenting an ID at one of the visitor services desks. Gallery stools are available on each level of the museum.
