Admissions Visitors: Admissions schedules visits by appointment only—we are unable to accommodate walk-in visitors at this time. Please schedule your appointment using the options available on this page. Please join us in the Main Gallery on the first floor, north end of the Main Building at your assigned appointment time and your admissions representative will be with you shortly. 

MCAD staff and guests are required to follow MCAD safety requirements such as wearing a mask regardless of vaccination status, maintaining six feet of physical distancing, and rescheduling the tour if anyone is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or thinks they might have been exposed to someone with COVID-19. Although Minnesota has ended its mask mandate, MCAD is requiring masks and physical distancing until further notice.
