THINGS TO REMEMBER
  • We have limited coat check space in the Education Centre. Upon arrival, a Museum Educator will guide you through this process.
  • Please bring only what students needs for their visit and leave bags at school if possible.

  • Please keep your valuables with you at all times. The Museum is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

  • Please do not bring outside art materials into the galleries unless otherwise specified and agreed upon at the time of booking. Aga Khan Museum Educators will provide all materials required for the booked program.

  • Please do not touch objects in the galleries. Your skin contains oils that can damage many of the objects over time.

  • Photography for personal use is permitted in most galleries, provided that no flash is used. Where the museum is obligated to prohibit photography of certain objects or exhibits, those items will be clearly marked as such.

  • If you have selected the workshop activity option, please wear comfortable and washable clothes. Learning and creativity can be a messy process!
