Ticketing FAQ

Walk-Up Tickets

Are walk-up tickets available?

While we recommend that you book tickets before your visit online, you may buy walk-up tickets at the Visitor Services Desk in Lenfest Hall (inside the West Foyer). At the Rodin Museum, all tickets are walk-up only (not available for purchase online).

Timed Entry

What happens if I’m early or late for my reservation?

We appreciate your efforts to visit close to your reservation time but don’t worry if you’re early or late—you’ll be admitted to the museum.

Can I change the date or time on my tickets or get a refund?

General admission tickets are usually nonrefundable and nonexchangeable but we understand conflicts occur. If you need to reschedule, email us at visitorservices@philamuseum.org with your confirmation number. In cases of illness or emergencies, we will process a refund; rebook your tickets online when you’d like.

Pay What You Wish

How do I reserve Pay What You Wish tickets online?

Admission is Pay What You Wish (PWYW) on the first Sunday of the month and every Friday night (5:00–8:45 p.m.). To purchase PWYW tickets, select the appropriate date, find the PWYW option in the menu, and click the blue button below (“10:00 a.m.” for first Sundays; “5:00 p.m.” for Friday nights) . Follow the prompts and enter your desired payment amount, and then select a time and the number of tickets.

Members

Do members need to reserve tickets before visiting?

No, members don’t need to reserve tickets ahead of time. Simply bring your membership card to the West Entrance, and we will scan it for you. Don’t have your card? Then check-in with your name and ID.

I am a reciprocal member of another museum or a member of AAM or ICOM. Do I need to reserve tickets ahead of time?

While we recommend that all visitors book tickets online, a small number of walk-up tickets are reserved for special promotions or reciprocal membership programs. Head to the Visitor Services Desk in Lenfest Hall and show your reciprocal membership or your AAM (American Alliance of Museums or (ICOM) International Council of Museums card for admission.

18 & Under

Do children need tickets?

While children 18 and under can visit at no cost, everyone that enters the museum needs a ticket for their visit. Youth tickets can be reserved in advance online when purchasing an admission ticket of value, or obtained in person in Lenfest Hall inside our West Entrance.

Mobile & Print-at-Home Tickets

How do I print my tickets at home?

If you use a mobile device, click the link in your receipt to access your mobile tickets; those will be scanned when you check-in. To print your tickets, click the link in your receipt from a desktop computer and select “Print Tickets Now.” We recommend you use black ink for easy scanning when you arrive at the museum.
