Take a break during your visit, whether you just need a quick coffee or a larger meal. Eat in the soaring, light-filled spaces of the Café, which offers several dining options for visitors.

Nice day tip: Take your food outside or bring a picnic and relax at picnic tables located outside throughout the Museum campus.

Kid-Friendly: Look for kid-friendly items on the menu like peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, chicken tenders, French fries, and pizza. High chairs are available in the indoor café seating area.
