The Montshire is open for both indoor and outdoor exploration! We have designed your visit to prioritize health and safety, as well as joyful science learning! Please review the changes to our hours, admission, ticketing process, and visitor policies. Pre-registration is required for each visit.
The Montshire is open Wednesday through Sunday, 10am to 4pm.
We are closed to the public on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Advanced Ticketing Process
We are implementing a timed ticketing system to ensure that our visitors can safely maintain social distancing.
All visitors, including members, are required to pre-register. Tickets must be reserved in advance for a morning arrival (10am–1pm) or afternoon arrival (1–4pm). You may arrive at any time during the session you have chosen, and you may stay as long as you wish until the Museum closes at 4pm.
You may purchase or reserve your tickets on this website up to three days prior to your visit.
To minimize the risk of COVID-19 spread, we require that visitors over the age of three wear a face covering or mask when inside the building. Face coverings and masks are highly encouraged outside and we ask that you wear them when interacting with Museum staff or other visitors.
Practice Healthy Hand Hygiene
Hand hygiene is crucial in mitigating the spread of infection. We ask that all visitors wash their hands or use hand sanitizer upon entry. We have upgraded our restrooms with touchless features and have increased the availability of hand-washing and hand-sanitizing stations throughout our building.
Maintain Social Distance
Social distancing has proven to be an effective measure in decreasing the risk of infection. We are limiting one visitor group per exhibit and ask that visitor groups stay together (all children must stay with adults at all times).
Limit Contact with Surfaces
Personal items must be kept with visitors at all times. The coat room is closed. Eating and drinking are not permitted inside the Museum building.
