2.     Please call at least 1-2 days ahead of time to reserve your time otherwise the Museum might be fully booked. Your pass can only be used on the date printed on the pass. You will need to provide the name of the library and library number (printed on your reservation) plus the date of your pass. 

3.     After you make your reservation, the Museum will send you an email confirmation with your reservation time.  Please bring both your library pass confirmation and your email confirmation from the Museum when you visit.

If you are not able to show your Library confirmation on a phone:

1.     Please request a paper copy of your confirmation at the library.

2.     Follow steps 1-3 above to reserve your timed ticket and request to pick up your tickets at the Box Office when you arrive. Please write down your ticket confirmation number and bring that and your library confirmation with you to the Museum.

3.     Go to the Box Office and provide your name, name of the library, and timed ticket confirmation number. The Box Office will give you tickets. Proceed to the gate with your tickets.
