For the Public


Visitors from Roland Park Place enjoy the museum exhibit.

During the Fall and Spring semesters, the museum is open from 10:30am to 1:30pm, Monday through Friday, and is also open on the first Saturday of each month from 12pm to 4pm.   Please note that during the Summer and Winter breaks, we generally have limited open hours, and these will be posted on our website closer to those dates.

Visitors to Gilman Hall can also walk around the perimeter of our museum at all times and see over 400 objects on view in our exterior facing cases.

There is no admission fee at this time.

While an important mission of the museum is to offer the general public and visitors access to wonderful objects from the ancient world, we also limit our open hours so that the museum’s spaces can be reserved for teaching and research.

Tours for the General Public

We are also open for tours, which can be arranged by contacting us.  In order to accommodate group tours, we charge a small admission fee per person.  This fee may be waived for Hopkins-affiliated groups or non-profit organizations.  The fees for specialized tours are as follows:

Adults: $8 per person
Seniors (65+): $7 per person
Students (with ID); Youth (6-17); Johns Hopkins Alumni and Retirees: $5 per person

In general, we cannot accommodate groups larger than 30 people at one time.

Tours for School Groups

We are delighted to offer focused tours about artifacts from the ancient world in our collection for school groups.  We are currently in the process of developing tours for students from the 4th to the 12th grades.  In general, we cannot accommodate student groups larger than 30 people at one time.  Please contact us for more information.
