Welcome to the Akron Art Museum! We're glad you are here!
Here's what you need to know to make the most of your visit:
To enjoy the museum and keep artworks safe, please:
Look, but don't touch the artwork. Works of art are fragile, so we recommend keeping a two-foot distance.
Stay together. Children 12 and under must be supervised by an adult at all times. We recommend holding hands in the galleries with younger children.
For summer experiences, summer camps and educational groups must book a tour time with the museum’s education department. For groups of children under ten years of age, the museum requires an adult to child ratio of 1:5 for all groups that do not register in advanced for summer tour experiences.
Food and Drink
Please don't bring food or drinks into the galleries. Food and drinks are okay to have in the museum lobby, the garden, and the museum café.
Bags and Backpacks
Please don't bring bags larger than 11 x 17 x 8 inches (about the size of 2 sheets of notebook paper side-by-side) into the galleries. Backpacks must be worn on the front of the body. You can check a large bag for free in the lockers located in the hallway between the museum shop and the café.
Summer Tours for Schools and Camp Groups
Bring your summer camp or day care group to the museum this summer for a hands-on museum adventure! Group tours include a 30 -minute gallery experience and a 30-minute hands-on experience in the museum’s Summer Studio space. Required group size minimum is 10 students, maximum 30 students. Tours must be booked three weeks in advance. Free for most educational groups and organizations (please call to confirm details).
Schedule your group tour at akronartmuseum.org/tours or call Associate Educator, Gina Thomas McGee, at 330.376.9186 x247
Photography & Sketching
You are welcome to take photographs of artwork on view for personal use unless otherwise noted. If you get a great photo, share your experience online! Use one of the hashtags associated with a particular artwork or exhibition, and tag the Akron Art Museum. We may share your photo with everyone we know! Please don't use flashes, tripods, easels, or selfie sticks—those items can harm the artwork and / or make it difficult for others to enjoy the galleries.
Sketching and drawing with pencil in the galleries is also permitted. Drawing with pens or ink or media other than pencil is not permitted.
