- Group tour organizers should note that the museum does not have lunchroom facilities and only has limited restroom facilities.

- The tour covers two floors and there is no elevator. We can offer a special PowerPoint presentation for groups unable to use the stairs - please request this in advance.

- 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.

-Driving directions and parking information can be found here.
