What to Expect

Masks are welcome but not required. Please read these visitor guidelines before making your reservation. By reserving your ticket (below), you agree to help support a safe environment for all visitors and staff. See our full terms and policies.

I Agree to...

Be Kind: Please be kind to our staff and each other. Respect the directions of the staff, as well as any gallery closures.

Keep a Safe Distance: Be mindful of maintaining a safe social distance between yourself and staff or other visitors. Please do not touch the art, as fingers (toes, elbows) cause immediate damage, leaving oils and dirt behind.

Be Camera Conscious: Photography, without flash or bright light, for personal use is permitted. Selfie sticks and autonomous or radio-controlled devices (drones) are not permitted anywhere in the Museum. Photo shoots, commercial photography, and tripod usage require special arrangements.

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 or learn that you have been exposed, please contact us at 414-224-3200 or mam@mam.org to reschedule your visit or arrange a refund.

COVID-19 is extremely contagious, and the risk of exposure exists in any location. The precautions listed here are intended to minimize your risk of contracting COVID-19 but are not a guarantee of your safety.
