In the museum, please look with your eyes, and not with your hands The art that you see is very fragile, and touching it can damage the work, sometimes in invisible ways. Please be careful to not touch the walls or clear boxes either. Take your time, and don’t feel like you have to see it allThere’s no need to rush – and please don’t run in the galleries. The museum is open from 10am to 5pm so you’ll have plenty of time to look. We’re also FREE all the time, so you can plan to come back. Capture your visitFeel free to take pictures—without flash. You can also draw or write – in pencil only please. – but please don’t lean on the walls or cases to do so.  Take a breakFood and drink are not allowed in the galleries, but feel free to pack a snack or lunch and enjoy it at the Norris Student Center.
It is right next door to the museum, has lots of room to eat, and there’s a food court, too.
