How it Works
Shortly after purchasing your tickets, you will receive an email confirmation with your tickets. Your ticket can only be scanned once, regardless of how many copies you have. “Print at home” is the only delivery option available for daytime admission tickets purchased in advance. You can also show these tickets on your phone when you arrive.
Print at Home tickets are valid from the date of purchase and do not have to be used on a specific date. Print at Home tickets have no expiration date and are valid any day the museum is open for daytime admission only and cannot be used on evening events or special programs.
Arriving at the Village
Please look for special signage that designates express entry with your pre-purchased ticket at the main entrance. You will need to have your tickets scanned by Visitor Center staff. If you pre-purchased a college student admission ticket, you will need to show a valid college ID.
If you did not receive a confirmation e-mail, your order was not processed.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 800-SEE-1830 if you are having trouble placing your order or printing your tickets.
All sales are final and there are no refunds or exchanges. Tickets are not transferable for use to other programs or events at the village and are good ONLY for daytime admission. If you cannot use the tickets, we encourage you to give them as gifts. There is no expiration date on pre-purchased Village admission tickets.
Purchasing Tickets at the Door
You are welcome to purchase admission tickets at the door as well. Those with tickets purchased online may receive an expedited entry on busy days.
