The Gal On The Go Pro Tip:

  • There is no limit to how long you can stay there but there is an allotted time you may arrive to go in the building (unless you purchase a more expensive flex ticket).
  • Best lighting for photos: Sunset. Check what time the sunsets (different times depending on the season) and go 1-2 hours before-hand. This will give you time to walk around the exhibit that’s on display prior to the slide and you will be able to get photography during the day time as well.
  • Best day of the week: Monday – Thursday. Your best bet to avoid large crowds.
