Hours & Admissions

The Lab will be opening on June 19!

Our operations will look a little different.

The health and safety of everyone who walks through our doors has always been our top priority. We have developed a plan that is guided by recommendations from public health officials and from the best practices of museums throughout the country. We will be welcoming back guests at a slow, methodical pace and will monitor operations in real time, making adjustments along the way. Please take time to review our complete Adjusted Operating Policies.
