FCM Guidelines

For the safety of the objects, the following are not permitted in the galleries: large bags, parcels, backpacks and umbrellas. Lockers are available for your convenience.
Non-flash photography for private, non-commerical use is permitted unless noted otherwise in a gallery. If you have any questions about gallery photography, please feel free to direct those questions to the front desk.
We ask that voices be kept low so that all visitors can enjoy a distraction-free experience. Please silence all personal electronic devices, and remember that cellphone conversation is not permitted inside the galleries.
Please do not touch the objects. The oils from your skin will damage the surfaces of paintings and objects. We ask that you keep a safe distance of at least 12 inches from all objects on display.
Pencil sketching is permitted in the galleries. If you wish to sketch, please ask the front desk for a chair or sketching board. Sitting on the floor is not permitted. Writing utensils other than pencil are not allowed in the galleries.
Food, chewing gum and beverages (including water bottles) are not permitted in the museum.

Tours

Planning to bring a group of 10 or more to the FCM?

An in-depth, docent-led tour is a great way to obtain a better understanding of any of our exhibits. Regularly scheduled docent-led tours take place every Thursday at 2:00 pm. A tour of any one of our galleries lasts approximately one hour. For a list of dates and subject matter, please see the docent-led tour schedule below.

We are also happy to coordinate a scheduled tour for your organization. We can accommodate groups up to 60 people per scheduled tour. Scheduled tours are free of charge, but require a refundable $25 deposit to secure your reservation. To schedule a tour, please contact the Curator of Education or call 843.676.1200.
