Reopening FAQ: Is there a limit on how many tickets I can reserve/purchase?

All ticket purchases/reservations are subject to limitations based on the available number of tickets for the session.  Subject to availability, Members can reserve as many tickets as there are people on the membership.

Reopening FAQ: Can I purchase a membership or upgrade my tickets to a membership during my visit?

Absolutely! Many new guests like to "try" the Museum before purchasing a membership. The purchase of general admission can be applied toward membership only on the day of purchase and only on a one-to-one exchange. Only tickets from one receipt/transaction can be applied to a membership. For example, if a visitor purchases five (5) tickets to the Museum and then would like to apply the purchase to the Family membership only the cost of four (4) tickets may be applied. Simply visit the Box Office during your visit to purchase a membership. You can also purchase a membership online at

Reopening FAQ: What if I have tickets that I bought that I could not use due to the pandemic? What if I have a unexpired complimentary pass?

If you have previously purchased tickets that you were unable to use due to our temporary closure due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we have extended the deadline to use them until December 30th. To use your tickets, or to use unexpired complimentary passes, please call the Box Office at 410-864-2744 and a Sales Associate will be happy to assist you.

Upcoming dates for $2 Community Day are November 22 and December 20. Advance tickets/reservations for all members and visitors are required.

You may leave and re-enter the Museum on the date that you purchased tickets for. If you exit the Museum, please be prepared to show your receipt to re-enter.

Reopening FAQ: Is proof of my ticket required? How do I redeem my ticket?

You will need to show a digital or print copy of your confirmation along with a matching photo ID upon arrival to the Museum. Once checked in, you will be given a receipt as proof of purchase that can be used for same-day re-entry.

Reopening FAQ: How much time does my ticket allow in the Museum? Will there be staggered times for entrance to the Museum?

Your ticket is good for the entire time the Museum is open on the date that you purchased tickets for. You may arrive at the Museum at any point during the open hours on the date of your scheduled visit, but your entire visit must take place before the Museum closes on the date of your visit. Tickets are only valid for the date selected at the time of purchase. Most visitors report spending approximately two to three hours at the Museum.
