** There will be no admittance to the museum later than 3:30 p.m. This ensures that you have enough time to see at least the majority of the museum. We realize that this may be inconvenient for some and it may make some visitors less than happy with the museum. However, we want to make sure that our visitors have the best experience possible when visiting the museum. We also want to make sure that our staff has adequate time to properly close down the museum at the end of the day. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.
