During opening hours, the major spaces (Tudor Gallery, Exhibit Hall, Reading Room, the Texas Room) as well as the north and south gardens can be visited without the need to plan ahead or make a reservation. Ask at the desk in the first-floor foyer for a free handout with information for a self-guided tour.

For event rentals (meetings, receptions, dinners, luncheons) click here where you will find room capacities, photos, fees, and contact information for the Ideson’s special events office.
