We are excited to welcome you to the DMA! To ensure the safest and most comfortable experience for our visitors and staff, we have updated our visiting hours, ticketing process, and safety measures across the Museum.
Please find the new information below and read our FAQ Page for more details on how we are caring for the health and well-being of all.
*Beginning October 1, Friday hours will be 2:00–8:00 p.m.
Free general admission entry to the DMA now requires a timed ticket secured in advance in order to maintain a limited capacity. General admission includes viewing the Museum’s collection galleries and most exhibitions.
If you would like to visit the special exhibition For a Dreamer of Houses while you are at the Museum, you must reserve a separate and matching timed special exhibition ticket once you have secured your general admission ticket. A special exhibition ticket alone will not permit entry to the DMA.
Adult tickets to For a Dreamer of Houses are $9, with discounts for seniors, students, and military.
DMA Members can reserve free tickets online.
- Children 11 and under are free but still require a ticket.
Visitors must reserve a timed ticket in advance of their visit.
All visitors and employees are required to wear face masks while visiting the Museum. The DMA will provide face masks to visitors without one. Refusal to wear a face mask will result in denial of entry to the Museum.
Guests not from the same household should remain at least six feet from other guests at all times.
Visitor entry to the Museum will be limited to the north entrance to control traffic flow. Visitors may depart the Museum from any of the building entries.
The DMA will require cashless transactions. Contactless payment for all transactions will be implemented.
Photography without a flash is allowed in the galleries unless otherwise indicated. But, to protect the artwork, tripods, monopods, and selfie sticks are not allowed.
Smoking and vaping are not permitted anywhere in the DMA, including outdoor Museum spaces, the DMA parking garage, and in front of the entrances.
Outside food and drink is not permitted in the DMA galleries, in the DMA Cafe, or at Socca. Visitors may bring picnics to eat on the lawn of Eagle Family Plaza, in the Sculpture Garden, and in Fleischner Courtyard. Please be considerate of those around you, and keep personal belongings, feet, and legs off seating. Outside alcohol and glass containers are prohibited.
Sketchbooks and pencils (no other art supplies) are permitted in the galleries.
For safety and health reasons, visitors should wear attire appropriate to a public facility, including shoes and shirts.
Please do not touch any work of art, including outdoor sculptures. When visiting the galleries with small children, please maintain supervision.
Fragile objects are often placed behind Plexiglas or ropes. Please refrain from touching the Plexiglas casing. If you see tape on the floor near a work of art, the tape indicates how far away you should stand from the object. A good general rule is to stand at least three feet away from a work of art.
For outside spaces:
Pets on a leash are allowed on Ross Avenue Plaza and Eagle Family Plaza. Please clean up after your pet.
Sports equipment, including soccer balls, footballs, and Frisbees, are not permitted on Eagle Family Plaza or in the Museum's outdoor gallery spaces. The use of bicycles, skateboards, and rollerblades is prohibited except on perimeter sidewalks.
Please keep the Eagle Family Plaza clean. Place all recyclables and waste in the appropriate receptacles.
