Make Museum Reservations Online

As part of our reopening plan, we have implemented Timed Ticketing for the museums to allow members and daily admissions to register in advance for a visit. Museums will operate on normal hours. There will be two daily sessions for ticket reservations:

  • Morning Session: 10 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
  • Afternoon Session: 1:30 p.m. – 5 p.m. 

Please note that on Sundays, morning sessions will be 12 - 2:30 p.m. and afternoon sessions will be 2:30 - 5 p.m.

We encourage you to purchase your ticket online ahead of time. This is the best way to ensure you are able to reserve tickets for the time desired.

Lunch at Leonardo's Café

While you're here, grab a bite to eat at our on-site Leonardo's Café. Kids and adults rave about the food and we know you’ll love it. Remember, Washington Pavilion members enjoy 10% off of their entire meal.
