Planning Your Visit
- Booking timed tickets helps keep transactions contact-free.
We are limiting the number of visitors in the building to facilitate social distancing, in accordance with city and state protocols.
- Due to limited capacity, advance reservations are strongly encouraged.
Reserve your tickets online (members must log in to verify their status and receive free admission) or call 215.898.4001.
- A two-hour admission window is allotted per timed ticket.
Guests may enter the Museum at any time during that window and explore the galleries at their own pace.
- We ask that if you are feeling unwell that you postpone your visit.
