Food & Drink
There is no food or beverage allowed in the exhibit halls except for lidded water bottles. We ask that all other food and beverage items remain stored outside the museum (or left with visitor services at the discretion of AMOS staff members). We have recycle and trash bins available throughout the museum.
Adult Supervision and Safety
Adult supervision is required at all times and we ask that adults maintain close supervision of younger guests. Children 16 and under are not permitted in the museum without an accompanying adult.
If a child gets separated from an adult please notify a staff member immediately so we can ensure CODE ADAM is quickly put in effect.
Shoes must be worn at all times (optional for the tree climb only)
Restrooms are for museum guests only-AMOS does not offer public restrooms
AMOS complies and follows standard rules and regulations of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) for Service Animals.
We are sorry but we do not allow any animal beside a service animal in our museum.
Strollers, Coats and Additional Items
We have a coat rack available as well as space for stroller storage-please note we do not have a coat check and each guest is responsible for their own items. AMOS is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
