We’re Open!

We are excited to welcome you back to the Connections Gallery gift shop! In light of COVID-19, we have instituted a one-way routing system and are limiting the number of guests inside the gift shop at a time. Hand sanitizer stations are available outside of the shop, and we are conducting ongoing cleaning and sanitizing procedures to keep our guests and staff healthy. Credit card transactions are strongly encouraged. Please note: All guests 5 years and older must wear a face covering when inside the Baker Exhibit Center.
