As part of our reopening plan, we have implemented new measures to ensure the safety of our visitors, staff, and volunteers. By following our Rebuild2020 safety practices, you will help make your visit a smooth, safe, and enjoyable one.
Please review these guidelines when buying your ticket and on the day of your visit, as they may be revised without notice. We recognize that circumstances may change at any moment, but we remain committed to providing you with the best Museum experience possible.
BUYING YOUR TICKET
- Please buy your ticket online in advance. The flow of visitors will be controlled using timed-entry ticketing and we encourage advance booking to avoid disappointment. Mobile tickets will be sent to you following your ticket purchase, please print or display these tickets on your mobile device upon arrival at the museum. Visitors who show up without a ticket may have to wait for the next available entry time.
- To purchase your ticket or parking voucher online, simply visit agakhanmuseum.org and click the “Reserve Tickets” button at the top of any page. At this time, we only accept cashless payment methods (debit and credit cards) for in-person ticket purchases.
- From Tuesday to Friday, admissions between 10 am and 12 pm are reserved for seniors (age 65 and older) and people who are immuno-compromised. Other people who are not accompanying a senior or immuno-compromised person are kindly asked to visit outside these hours.
PREPARING FOR YOUR VISIT
- If you’re feeling unwell or have a fever on the date of your visit, please reschedule for another time. If you have purchased tickets and are not able to visit, please email [email protected] for assistance.
