Pre-Visit Information
Other Important Pre-Visit Information
Gregg staff frequently organize tours to better meet diverse visitor needs. Our Curator of Education can customize an exhibition or collection tour to meet particular interests and access needs. Sign language interpreters are available upon request (please provide Gregg staff at least two weeks notice). With advance notice, we are eager to provide any other assistance needed. Occasionally, there can be non-museum events scheduled in the first and second floor lobbies that may have temporary set-ups such as tables and chairs that could impede a straight path from the top of the stairs or elevator to the museum, but with advance notice we can help visitors negotiate any potential obstacles like this.
