- The art at the DMA is not camera shy! Photography without a flash is allowed in the galleries unless otherwise indicated. But, to protect the artwork, tripods/monopods are not allowed.
- Smoking is not permitted in any area of the Museum. Food and beverages are not allowed in the galleries.
- For safety and health reasons, visitors should wear attire appropriate to a public facility, including shoes and shirts.
- Please do not touch any artwork. When visiting the galleries with small children, please maintain supervision.
- Fragile objects are often placed behind Plexiglas or ropes. Please refrain from touching the Plexiglas casing. If you see tape on the floor near a work of art, the tape indicates how far away you should stand from the object. A good general rule is to stand at least three feet away from a work of art.
- The coat check is located on the first level under the staircase next to the DMA Cafe. All umbrellas and oversized parcels must be checked.
We appreciate your help in protecting the art for future generations to enjoy.
