HCP welcomes back our community as we reopen our gallery and Digital Lab (pass holders only) by appointment beginning Friday, September 11. Admission remains free, but guests are required to register for their appointment time, and each person entering the gallery must show their appointment e-ticket or present a printed ticket for admissions.

All tickets have an entry time. Please arrive at your designated time so you can enter promptly and have plenty of time to view the exhibition. We recommend registering for your appointment online in advance to secure your preferred date and time and to have a contactless experience when you arrive.

A limited number of free virtual tours are available for schools and community partners. Please email [email protected] for details.
