We are following all University of Nebraska-Lincoln guidelines related to COVID-19. Per UNL guidance, issued May 21, 2021, those who are fully vaccinated from COVID-19 will not be required to wear a face covering while visiting the museum. We respectfully ask that those who are unvaccinated continue to wear face coverings during their visit, and we have complimentary face coverings and alternatives available for our visitors who may need them. We also no longer require social distancing and are no longer limiting our capacity.

If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, we encourage you to consider visiting the museum at another time.


All tours are free!

Guided group tours are provided on a limited basis at the discretion and availability of the Museum Director. Guided tours can connect the exhibition with themes or content that your group may be interested in or provide a general overview of artwork on view.

Self-guided tours are available to all groups who wish to tour the museum at their own pace. If you plan to bring in a group (or multiple groups) of 10 or more for a self-guided visit, we ask that you fill out our online tour form so we can be prepared for your arrival.
