Thousands are expected to attend Aretha Franklin's public visitations on Tuesday and Wednesday at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History.

However, there are certain restrictions in place.

For those planning on attending and paying respects, there are a few things to keep in mind. No pictures or videos can be taken once entering the museum. At the family's request, recording devices will not be allowed during the viewing.

All guests will be instructed to turn off and store all electronic devices before entering.

Due to the expected crowds, the museum strongly suggests carpooling, ride-sharing or getting dropped off.

The City of Detroit has relaxed parking restrictions in metered zones during the visitation.

The visitation will be held from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. both Tuesday and Wednesday.
