Print Materials and Activities
A kit including a Museum scavenger hunt, activity sheets, and colored pencils will be provided to each family/group at the Admissions Desk upon arrival. Colored pencils should be returned to the Admissions Desk at the end of a visit so they can be disinfected.
Each family/group checking in at the Admissions Desk will be asked if they wish to schedule a timed session in The Art Studio. A set number of 20-minute sessions are available throughout the day.
If all timed sessions in the Art Studio are booked, families/groups can pick up an Art Project To Go! bag, which includes the same materials used in the Art Studio project. These take-away art project bags can be enjoyed out in Bobbie’s Meadow or back at home.
The Museum Bookshop will allow 8 visitors at a time. If the shop is at capacity, visitors can wait in a socially distanced line until they are able to enter.
Visitors can also shop online at https://shop.carlemuseum.org and arrange for home delivery or curbside pickup. While debit or credit cards are preferred (to reduce cash handling), cash will be accepted.

Purchase Advance Tickets
Reserve admission tickets now to secure a spot as visitor capacity is reduced. Walk-ups are not guaranteed. Members and non-members can make an online reservation for a specific day and arrival time block (morning or afternoon). We ask that visitors arrive during the time block listed on their reservation so we can manage the number of people in the building at a given time. On average, a visit to The Carle lasts 1.5 to 2 hours.
