Explore the Collections
As we work to reopen in phases, only select galleries are open at this time. Additional galleries will be reopened in phases, as spaces and one-way traffic routes continue to be reconfigured for safe and socially distant use. See Map for the most up-to-date maps of what’s open.
Galleries that are temporarily closed include Art of Europe, Art of Asia, Art of Africa, Musical Instruments, and Jewelry. Galleries dedicated to Egyptian, Greek, and Roman art are closed as a major renovation project continues in the George D. and Margo Behrakis Wing for Art of the Ancient World. See Gallery Updates for more information.
