Five Things to Know about Performances at the Museum

  1. Doors open half an hour before show time.
  2. Museum exhibits are open, and you are welcome to explore during the intermission.
  3. Programs typically last about 90 minutes.
  4. These performances are a bit less structured than your typical concert. The artists spend a little more time talking to the audience, answering questions, and often stay to sign autographs and chat.
  5. Although there might be an occasional opportunity to buy a snack at certain performances, there are no concessions at the museum.

All dates, times, prices and offerings are subject to change without notice.
