Visit Tips

We are dedicated to the health and safety of our visitors and staff. Here are some guidelines to make sure you have the best museum and store visit possible.

Face Coverings

Effective May 10, face coverings are optional for visitors to the museum and outside on the grounds of Anderson Plaza. Read more about South Dakota State University's face covering policies.

Please contact us with any additional questions.

6 Feet Apart

Please maintain a 6-foot distance from visitors not in your party. 

Are You Well?

If you feel ill or have a fever, please stay home and reschedule your visit.

Clean Hands

Please feel welcome to use the automatic door openers when entering the museum. We ask that you avoid touching surfaces within the museum as much as possible. Hand sanitizing stations can be found at the welcome desk, at the top of the stairwell to the lower level and outside the rest rooms in the lower level. 

Kids Imagination Station

The Kids Imagination Station is temporarily closed.


Non-flash photography is allowed in galleries and public spaces. Feel free to tag @sdartmuseum if you post to social media!


The museum often photographs and films onsite programs for use on promotional materials. If you do not wish to be filmed or photographed, please inform a staff member.
