What is a free Timed Pass?

A free Timed Pass ensures entry to the exhibition at a particular date and time. Timed Passes are required for Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors due to the popularity of the artist and the nature of the exhibition, which features 6 immersive spaces designed to hold only a few people at a time.

What if my preferred time slot isn’t available online?

  • Visit this page next Monday at noon, when the next batch of Timed Passes will be released online.
  • A limited number of same-day Walk-Up Passes will be available onsite once the exhibition opens, on February 23. Walk-Up Passes can only be used on the day that they are issued. Visitors cannot reserve future dates in person.

How can I get Passes for a future visit?

Free Timed Passes for a particular day will be released online Monday at noon the week prior.

Can I obtain a Timed Pass at the Museum?

Each day, a limited number of free same-day Walk-Up Timed Passes will be available at the Museum. A line will start forming on the Museum Plaza near the fountain, and the passes will be distributed starting at 10:00 am on a first-come, first-served basis.

Do children require Timed Passes?

Each visitor requires a pass. Adults need to obtain free Timed Passes for all children. Timed Passes help us account for the time necessary to enter the museum and go through the security process.

I am a member of the Hirshhorn. Do I still need a Timed Pass?
