  • The museum is open 11am to 5pm Tuesday through Sunday. Both the museum and administrative offices are closed major holidays.

  • General tours are regularly offered at 1:30 pm on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, free with museum admission. Please note that tour availability is subject to change. Contacting the museum prior to your visit to confirm tour offerings is recommended. At all other open times, visitors may view the collection without a guide.

  • The museum closes at 5pm on Fridays and does not participate in First Friday hours.



Due to the fragile nature of the collections and the popular but

vulnerable salon style in which they are displayed, Kirkland Museum

limits all visitors during open hours and events to those age 13 and up.

Children between the ages of 13 and 17 are welcome, but must be

accompanied by an adult.




Thank you for your interest in bringing a group to Kirkland Museum.

  • An advance reservation for any group of 8 or more people is appreciated and can be made a minimum of 10 days in advance.
  • An advance reservation must be made in order for groups to receive the discounted $5 per person Group Admission rate. The group organizer, such as teachers and group leaders, as well as bus drivers, will be admitted free of charge.
  • Due to the size of the museum’s galleries, groups larger than 15 people will be asked to break into smaller groups to view the collection. Groups larger than 30 people at any given time are not permitted due to the nature of the displays and small gallery spaces.
  • Group reservations can be scheduled Tuesday through Sunday with start times between 11am and 1pm or 2pm to 3:30pm.
  • To make a group reservation for 8 or more people, please click on the orange button below to open the reservation form. Once submitted, a museum staff member will contact you to confirm the date and time of your reservation.
