Why do adults have to pay to get into the Museum?
One word: Bills.
Seriously, your dollars fund exhibits and help us maintain the Museum, remain affordable and accessible to all, and keep the perfect temperature to play, whether it’s warm in the winter or cool in summer. Approximately 75 percent of the Museum’s annual operating budget is earned through admissions, memberships, parties, gift shop sales, and program fees.

You are welcome to record your own special memories for your family/group. Please do not capture images of other guests without their consent.
