Visitor Policies

Special care is taken at all times to preserve the artwork. For this reason we ask that you refrain from touching or getting too close to the artwork, display cases, and pedestals. Exhibits that allow close interaction and touch will be labeled as such. 

The Native American Studies Center (NASC) staff members are happy to answer your questions about the NASC and the City of Lancaster area. Visit the Reception desk for any assistance you may need.
