Please enjoy your visit to Krannert Art Museum. To protect the works of art, we request that you follow the gallery guidelines below.
When individuals or groups visit the museum, it can be helpful to think about appropriate behavior in the galleries. Krannert Art Museum also has guidelines about items that are and are not permitted. Here's an overview:
Please do not touch the artwork, and try to stand at a safe distance from paintings and pedestals. The care you take helps to preserve the art on display.
Be sure to walk slowly and carefully in the galleries. Please do not lean on walls or cases. Some galleries have benches or other seating, but there are also portable stools and seated walkers available near the entrances to the museum, if needed.
To keep the artwork safe from accidents, we ask that visitors do not bring large bags, backpacks, umbrellas, and/or heavy coats into the galleries. You may leave them in your vehicle or in a locker at one of the entrances. These lockers require a deposit of 25 cents which is returned when items are removed. There is no coat check available at the front desk, so please plan ahead.
The Espresso Royale Palette Café is open year-round. Food and drink is permitted there and outdoors only. To protect the artwork, there is no eating, drinking, or chewing gum allowed in the galleries.
Where it is permitted, feel free to take photographs (always no flash, please), but there is no filming or tripods allowed without prior permission. The museum guards can let you know whether photography is permitted or prohibited in each gallery. Detailed information on photography in the museum is outlined below.
Unless otherwise posted, photography/videography of artwork in the KAM collection, using a handheld camera and without flash, is allowed for non-commercial use only.
Artwork on loan to the museum may not be photographed without express written permission.
Professional photography must be scheduled in advance. Please Contact KAM to make a request. We will assist you with scheduling.
