BARRETT’S LANDING CAFÉ
FOOD AND DRINK
Barrett’s Landing Cafe’ is a great place to land for lunch. Grab a quick snack or an on-the-move meal. It’s just plane good. Featuring menu items for every eater—picky or not—or even just a cup of coffee to start the day. Please remember that outside food and drink is only allowed in designated picnic areas and not inside the museum. (Note: For safety purposes during the pandemic, we have temporarily migrated to a grab-and-go menu. The menu below is our full menu which we hope to reinstate in mid 2021.)
