To allow for a less crowded admission experience, we’ve changed the entry process to make it easier, faster, and safer for both Members and General Admission guests. Please bring your confirmation email either electronic or printed.

Members: Members should enter the Museum at the entrance to the right of the main building, where staff will greet them and handle their admission tickets.

General Admission guests: General admission ticket holders will enter through the left door of the main entrance. Guest relations staff will assist with purchasing museum admission tickets in a newly renovated, larger admissions area.

Please allow yourself adequate time for parking, check-in, and to make your way to the Dino Egg Hunt area.
