ASK ABOUT OUR VIDEO TOURS

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR VISITORS

Before your visit, there are a few things you need to know.
  • 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 via video tours- please request this at the front desk. A spoken English video tour is available upon request.
  • Video tours using American Sign Language are also available upon request.
  • 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.
  • No large bags, strollers, or camera accessories like tripods are allowed on the tour.
