Museum visitor numbers are now limited. Advanced, timed-tickets are available online at Walk-in visitors are accepted considering that the museum is not at capacity. All visitors are encouraged to book an admission ticket with a specific entry time. 
As part of UBC’s commitment to the health and safety of our community, and the responsibility we all share in preventing the potential for COVID-19, students, faculty, staff and visitors are required to follow UBC’s COVID-19 Campus Rules when on campus. These rules include the requirement to wear non-medical masks in common indoor spaces. Read all procedures for a safe visit here
