Visit on Your Schedule

Avoid the stress of last-minute details and get into the exhibition faster. Make advance reservations to choose the best time for you and skip the box office line at the museum. We've expanded our hours and capacity to accommodate more time slots. Tickets are available.

Avoid the Crowds

Enjoy the exhibition without feeling rushed or crowded. Schedule your visit for non-peak times—evenings after 5 p.m. During the run of King Tut the museum will be open every day until 9:30 p.m. with a last entry time to the exhibition of 7:30 p.m.

Always 68 Degrees and Science-y

Please be aware that the temperature inside the exhibition is kept at 68 degrees. This is the ideal temperature for the conservation of organic artifacts, but it may feel cool to people dressed for the warm summer months. We suggest that visitors should plan their dress accordingly.
