Free general admission entry to the DMA requires a ticket secured for entry. Visitors are encouraged to reserve tickets online in advance. Walk-ups are welcome and will be accommodated, but please note that you will be directed to the Guest Services Desk at either our Ross Avenue Entrance or Main Entrance if you do not have a ticket.

General admission includes viewing the Museum's collection galleries and most exhibitions.

If you would like to visit any special exhibitions requiring a paid ticket for admission, you must reserve a separate ticket once you have secured your free general admission ticket for the same date. A special exhibition ticket alone will not permit entry to the DMA.
