Can I bring food?

Picnics are welcome! We will have food trucks/caterers selling their yummy refreshments at each concert. But if you prefer to bring your own food or drinks you are welcome to.

Do you sell alcohol?

No. However, the jazz series is BYOB. Guests of drinking age are welcome to bring their own alcoholic beverages to enjoy on the waterfront. All open alcoholic beverages must remain on the waterfront property. Please drink responsibly.

Can I bring my own lawn chair?

Absolutely! We will be providing chairs and picnic tables for all concerts. However, you are welcome to bring your own preferred lawn chair if you'd like.

Can I bring my dog?

Parking is first-come-first-serve. Guests are welcome to park in the Museum parking lot along Burnside Street. Overflow parking can park on the lawn in front of the Museum. Please be careful not to block in anyone else's car. If both the parking lot and the lawn are full, we recommend finding street parking on High Street or Burton Street.

    Is the museum & jazz concerts wheelchair accessible?

    • The majority of the Museum’s exhibits are wheelchair accessible. The Jazz concerts are held outside and are also wheelchair accessible. However, the outdoor restrooms are not. The restrooms in the Hall of Boats are accessible. A staff member can help block traffic and be a guide to the restrooms.
