Get tickets

Reserved tickets are no longer required to visit the Museum, but online tickets can get you into the Museum faster. With your confirmed ticket, you can either present a printout of your reservation or show the reservation electronically on your mobile device, and we’ll check you in and get you on your way!

Business Member visitors will need to reserve tickets via email before their visit. While we have dropped timed ticketing for the general public, all Business Member visitors need to reserve tickets via email before their visit.

Did you know that a Membership to the Museum can cost less than the price of two visits? It’s one of the best values for families anywhere in North Carolina!
