Museum Conduct Policies:
The FASNY Museum is not a children's Museum. We are a family history Museum. Families come in all types, some have children, some do not, so expectations of a Museum visit vary greatly. The best way for any family to learn is through doing. So, the Museum offers interactive family-friendly opportunities of all types throughout the Museum. The majority of these interactives are for children age three and over. Children two and under will not be able to participate in most interactives, due to safety concerns.
To ensure all visitors expectations for their Museum visit are met, and to keep all visitors and artifacts safe, we require Museum policies to be followed during your visit. Below are some of the Museum's policies regarding conduct for all visitors in Museum galleries:
-All visitors must watch the Museum's orientation video (about 5 minutes) before they are allowed entry to the Museum. This is to ensure you understand the policies concerning the Museum artifacts on exhibit.
-Due to heightened security concerns in today's world, large bags are not allowed to be brought into the Museum. We
define a large bag as a backpack, a duffle bag or any other bag larger than 14 inches long. Please plan accordingly.
-No food or drink of any kind is allowed in the Museum.
-No running, jumping or horseplay is allowed in the Museum.-All visitors must be good Museum citizens: use your inside voice and be considerate of others during your visit. While we want you to share your thoughts with those who are with you and laugh out loud if so moved, yelling or screaming will not be tolerated.
-The touching of objects is allowed only when you see the Firestar logo.
