Code of Conduct - Remember the Basics

Wear a Mask and Use Hand Sanitizer

Staff and visitors will wear masks at all times while in the Museum. Hand sanitizer is available for your use before entry and throughout your visit.

Mind the Signs: Keep a Safe Social Distance

You will notice new signage to help everyone keep a safe social distance. Parking spaces and specific galleries will be blocked off. Look down to see decals to help gauge your proper distance.

Go with the Flow

We have a temporary, dedicated route through the Museum to ensure social distancing. For now, only the first floor is open to visitors. We ask that you follow the prescribed path and respect any gallery closures. Map here.

Check Yourself

Declare that you are currently not exhibiting symptoms consistent with COVID-19. If, after making this reservation and prior to your Museum visit, you become ill, please contact us at 414-224-3200 or so that your reserved time can be made available for another visitor. We’re in this together.

Be Kind

Please be kind to our staff and each other. Respect the directions of the staff. We are here to help, and are looking out for everyone’s health and safety.
