The Museum, Library, Bookstore, and Welcome Center are open Wednesday – Saturday year round, except Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day. Extra closings around the winter holidays are tempting to the staff, so please double-check before making your plans.

During these restricted hours, library research is by appointment (or luck, if you show up unannounced).
