Q:

you said there are no special exhibits yet "Highlights from OUR BODY: The Universe Within" is listed under the special exhibits section. please clarify

Heidy C.  asked on  Nov 9, 2011

A:

Hi Heidy, Sorry for the confusion. Specimens from the OUR BODY exhibit have been incorporated into our regular exhibits and are therefore included with general admission. Anatomy in the Gallery and Body of Work are also included with general admission. Occasionally IMSS will install a temporary exhibition that occupy an entire floor or more, there are no such exhibits on display at this time. These exhibits would require an additional admission fee. I hope this answers your questions if not, please feel free to contact us for additional information.

Hi Lucy, Individual membership includes free admission for the card holder only. Members also receive invitations to special events, these invitations are always for the member and a guest.

Q:

Does this price include admission to the entire museum? Or is there a separate price for special exhibits?

Joe B.  asked on  Nov 8, 2011

A:

Hi Joe, Currently there are no special exhibits on display so the price includes admission to the entire museum. At this time, IMSS does not have any special/temporary exhibits that are scheduled to open before May 2012. Should this change an additional fee may be required to view the temporary exhibition.
