IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR VISITORS

- The tour covers two floors and there is no elevator. Visitors unable to use the stairs can tour the first floor and then explore the second floor through a booklet that includes photographs and detailed information about the second-floor rooms- please request this at the front desk.

- The one-hour tour may be unsuitable for young children, due to its length, the sophistication of the subject matter, and our hands-off approach to our collections.

- Young children and visitors sensitive to topics such as mental illness, death, and autopsy may find the museum disturbing. Human skeletons and preserved organs are on display at the museum.
