Visitor Guidelines

Our visitor guidelines will help you get the most out of your MSU Broad experience.

Please do:

  • Wear a face covering. All individuals are required to wear masks indoors in all campus buildings and other MSU facilities in East Lansing and throughout the state.
  • Have conversations about the art.
  • Share your experience with us! @MSUBroad
  • Take photos for personal (non-commercial/promotional) use within the museum, provided that they are respectful of the building, objects, and fellow visitors. The following restrictions apply during public hours: flash photography, use of tripods/monopods/selfie sticks, use of lighting equipment, and inhibiting the experience of other visitors.

Thank you for helping us protect the artwork by:

  • Not touching the art—natural oils from hands and fingers cause damage.
  • Not eating or drinking in the galleries.


To schedule a photoshoot outside of public hours, please contact us at a minimum of 2 weeks in advance.


MSU ramps and lots are open to the public after 6pm Monday–Friday and all day on weekends. Metered parking is available in Grand River parking structure (Ramp 6) during business hours. Paid parking is also available throughout the City of East Lansing (rates in effect 8am–3am Monday–Saturday). View a parking map.

Drop-Off + Pick-Up

Visitors wishing to drop-off or pick-up members of their party can do so via eastbound Grand River Avenue utilizing the U-shaped drive between Berkey Hall and the museum. The path from this drive to the museum’s west entrance is heated and barrier-free.
