Plan Your Visit

We are excited to welcome you back to the Eastman Museum! In order to ensure all our guests have a safe and enjoyable experience, we have introduced some new guidelines and measures that prioritize the health and safety of our visitors and staff.

Not ready to visit onsite? Check out GEM at Home for activities, videos, tutorials and more relating to the museum’s collections, and tour the museum online using our Virtual Tours.

Preparing for Your Visit

  • Masks are required for all individuals over two years old; please bring one for each member of your party. Please note that no one will be allowed onsite without a mask.
    • Individuals under two years old must be in a stroller or carried by an adult at all times.
    • Masks are required outdoors on museum grounds when it is not possible to maintain a distance of six feet from other parties.
    • If you are unable to wear a mask, we ask you come at a later date when masks are not required. Visit GEM at Home for talks, tours, activities and more you can enjoy at home.
    • Click here for more information on wearing masks at the museum.
  • Advance tickets are required and may be purchased online at eastman.org/tickets.
    • Members, active military, and SNAP EBT do not need to purchase advance tickets; new members who have not yet received their cards can check in without them at the Lipson Welcome Center.
