Arts in the Museum Park
Offering optimal sightlines, reserved seating offers an exciting, close-up experience of performances.
Lawn seating is a great value and provides room to spread out with a picnic. Children age 5 and under are admitted free on the lawn.
The Joseph M. Bryan, Jr., Theater in the Museum Park is wheelchair accessible from the Museum's main parking lot.
For concerts: Upon entering the ticket gate, follow the blacktop path on the right around the grass seating area. The first break in the path on the left leads to our wheelchair-accessible patio. The path continues down to the left side of the stage for access to the restrooms.
For films: Upon entering the ticket gate, follow the blacktop path on the right around the grass seating area. Continue on the path to the rear of the amphitheater stage area. Take the ramps to the wooden viewing platform facing the screen.
If you have any questions, call the Museum Box Office at (919) 715-5923. If you need assistance while in the Park, an Arts in the Museum Park volunteer can assist you.
Join Us for a Picnic
Picnics are welcome in the amphitheater—or enjoy great food from Iris, the Museum Restaurant, the perfect complement to our outdoor events. Enjoy a full menu during concerts or snacks during movies.
Although visitors may not bring alcoholic beverages onto Museum property, beer and a selection of wines by the glass or the bottle is offered at concerts and films. Water and other nonalcoholic beverages are also available.
