The Museum is a non-smoking facility. Smoking of any kind, including electronic cigarettes, is prohibited on Museum grounds. This is a family-friendly environment. Proper attire, including shirts, pants and shoes, are required at all times. Group Tours: We have found that children below the age of 5 do not do well with our interpretation/exhibits on a Group Tour, so we request that you consider 5 to be the minimum age as part of any Group Tour. Obviously, babes-in-arms are always welcome.
