Available Timed-entry Tickets

Our timed ticketing program allows you to reserve your visit in advance, so you will be able to fully experience all MOSAC has to offer. It’s important to know that we may not be able to accommodate your visit without an advance reservation, so make yours today! A complimentary UC Davis Multiverse Theater show is included with your general admission. On the day of your visit, please inquire at the Admissions Desk about show times and reserving a theater seat.

Please note, all visitors including members are limited to one Multiverse Theater reservation per visit – thank you for helping us ensure that as many visitors as possible can enjoy a show.

Admission Tickets can be refunded or rescheduled with 24 hour advance notice. If you are unable to use your tickets the day of your visit due to illness, your tickets can only be rescheduled on that day. Please call 916-674-5000 or email for assistance.
