Due COVID-19 precautionary guidelines, our cafe and vending machines are closed and eating is not allowed in the building. Non-alcoholic drinks in resealable bottles are permitted. There are picnic tables available outside.

Floor plans are available at the Front Desk and you can print or review one ahead of your visit by clicking here: Museum floor plan.
Visitors are encouraged to park in the lot accessible from the Fillmore Street Gate off Tysen Street. The parking lot is on the immediate left when entering the Snug Harbor campus. Construction within the campus will necessitate the intermittent and unannounced closure of some interior roads.

Restrooms are located on the C Level near Block Harbor, the 2nd Level near the Walk-In Workshop as well as on the Lower Level (LL) near the Community Gallery.
