MFA Boston Announces Temporary Closure

BOSTON (December 14, 2020)—The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), will close temporarily starting Wednesday, December 16 in accordance with Mayor Walsh’s directives and to support the city’s efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19. We expect to reopen in early January.

Since reopening our doors in September, we have made the health and safety of our staff and visitors our top priority. As COVID-19 cases continue to rise in Boston and throughout the country, we are aligned with city leadership and will do our utmost to keep our community safe.

"We appreciate the Mayor's efforts to keep Bostonians safe, and are committed to doing our part," said Matthew Teitelbaum, Ann and Graham Gund Director. "Museums and cultural institutions understand the need to take significant action to curb increasing infection rates, and we have helped keep our communities safe by exceeding public health guidelines. As we move to reopening in the new year, we know that museums will provide a welcoming space for all of Boston long into the future."​
