Frequently Asked Questions

When can I visit?

The Museum, Library, Bookstore, and Welcome Center are open Wednesday – Saturday year round, except Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day. Extra closings around the winter holidays are tempting to the staff, so please double-check before making your plans.

During these restricted hours, library research is by appointment (or luck, if you show up unannounced).

Schedule subject to change due to COVID-19 recommendations and accomodations.

What Interstate 81 exit should I take?

Traveling from the North: exit 245

Traveling from the South: exit 240

Is the building accessible?

Yes, a gentle ramp transitions you from the parking lot to the main entrance, bookstore, and restrooms. Inside, an elevator helps you enter the galleries downstairs and the library upstairs.

Is there a tour schedule?

The Electric Map is shown on demand. The galleries and the Historic Dayton Walking Tour are self-guided. Tour Guides may be prearranged.
