MIM can provide a private guided tour of the museum upon request. Please let us know at least one week before your visit.
The galleries are usually busiest on weekday mornings due to field trips.

Assistive listening systems are available at Guest Service.
MIM can provide an American Sign Language interpreter upon request with one week’s advance notice before your visit.
We provide headsets that automatically play music at exhibits throughout the galleries. Guests can bring their own headphones if they have a standard headphone jack. Bluetooth and wireless headsets will not work with MIM equipment.
Guests are welcome to bring their own noise-cancelling headphones to support any sensory needs.
