Museum Guidelines for Visitors:

___________________________________

Please note: all visitors to the Museum will be required to wear a mask at all times and social distance and follow the other ND HERE campaign guidelines:

         a.) Wear a face mask 
         b.) Upon entry to the Museum clean your hands with the hand-sanitizer products available at the entrance and other "high touch" places throughout the Museum, and with soap and water in the restrooms
         c.) Practice physical distancing from others of least 6ft
          d.) Stay to the right in hallways and stairwells
          e.) Only use the drinking fountains to refill water bottles; do not drink from them
          f.) Follow the posted space capacity signs and overall Museum signage.

As always, no food or drink are permitted in the galleries.  Other than students attending classes in the auditorium, backpacks must be deposited in the coatroom.

We ask that Museum guests also follow these standard Museum guidelines:

  • ​Use your eyes, not your hands. Touching of any work of art is not allowed—this includes the walls and pedestals on which artworks are displayed.
  • Food, gum, and beverages are not permitted in the galleries.
  • Bags, purses, and backpacks larger than 11 x 15 inches must be left in the coatroom or stored in a locker (which are available free of charge).
  • Coats not placed in the coatroom must be worn, not carried or tied around the waist.​
  • Photography of artworks that the Museum owns is allowed (without flash or use of a tripod).  Keep an eye out for the no photography symbol in special exhibitions, or works of art on loan.  When in doubt, ask a security guard if you can take a photo.
  • The Snite Museum welcomes visitors to use its collection for study, inspiration, and enjoyment. Sketching with pencil and paper (without an easel) is allowed in the galleries. Only dry media in pencil form (charcoal, graphite, colored pencil, etc.) may be used.
