Do you have to purchase tickets in advance for the museum or can you get them when you go to the museum that day?
no just walk up to the window inside the door. you can save a couple of dollars purchasing thru their website but it is not necessary and not refundable. make sure to visit all three big rooms. I would not have known about the third, if my step son had not researched it before we went. one ticket gets you everywhere in on building. no extra charges in less you make a gift shop purchase.
No, we bought ours at the door when we got there.
I have always gotten the day of, with the exception of the special Labyrinth exhibit which I bought in advance. It wasn't sold out I was just paranoid that it would be.
there are three huge rooms to walkthrough only two of them connect the third you have to go back out into the lobby and into another door..
No you do not have to buy them in advance - Now if it was during a tour time or around a particularly popular performance it might be more crowded but I don't think since it is set up for you to wander thru at your leisure that it would be at capacity at any time - you might have to wait in line for tickets or to go in but I would that would be only on rare occasions - we went on a Tuesday - they are closed on Mondays - we arrived mid morning and we just walked up to the window and purchased our tickets - the whole time we were there I don't think we saw more than 10 people in either Collection combined - If you were to go on a weekend I am sure it might have more people there - To answer your question if you are just going to the self guided tour no you do not have to have advance tickets
We bought three tickets upon arrival as we came kind of impromptu but some shows might be sold out. It's not reserved seating but there are some sections for a select group, birthday parties maybe I can't remember.
You can purchase at the on-site ticket window, but if you are planning to see the current performance being shown in the theater, I recommend advance purchase. The early performance was sold out, and although we could have gotten tickets for a later show, we had a limited time to spend at the museum. Hopefully they will be bringing Rudolph and the gang back this coming Holiday season.
Day-of tickets is standard, I believe. Maybe if there is a special event going on it would be something to look into. But we, and the others entering at the same time, just bought at the window.
