Tips for your visit
Crowds will rarely be a problem at ISM - on the contrary, that’s a great place to escape the crowds of bigger city museums. Even during the busiest months the attendance remains moderate, and no real precautions are needed for planning.
Just know that Saturday is the busiest day of the week, while Thursday is usually the calmest one.
August and October are the peak months. If you can visit the museum at another period - better do it. April, July and November are shoulder months, while December and January make the quietest period of the year.
