Gallery Updates

As we work to update the Museum’s galleries and install new exhibitions, from time to time, galleries may be closed temporarily for ongoing renovations or special events.

Works may also be taken off view for study or conservation. Use Collections Search to check the on-view status of your favorite artwork before you visit. Note that short-term artwork relocations or gallery closures are not reflected in Collections Search.
