COVID-19 POLICY: Face masks are encouraged but not required for visitors, staff, volunteers, and vendors in all MAG indoor and outdoor areas.

In order to make the museum visit pleasurable for all, we ask that you follow the guidelines below:

  • Food, beverages, umbrellas, backpacks, large bags (16”x 20” or larger), and baby back carriers are not allowed in the gallery. Please use our free coatroom and lockers located near the front entrance.
  • Wheelchairs and umbrella strollers are available in our coatroom for your use — free of charge.

  • Please do not touch the art; natural oils and dirt from your hands can damage delicate artwork. Please do not lean on art cases or walls. We recommend staying 12 inches back to avoid touching the works by accident.
  • Please use regular or colored pencils only when making notes or drawing in the galleries. No pens, ink, or markers are to be used inside the gallery.
