The Milwaukee Art Museum—which has been open in a limited capacity since July—is now closed. It will remain closed until at least January 2, 2021. Sigh. Here’s the press release.


Milwaukee Art Museum Closes November 19
-The Milwaukee Art Museum has closed to the public until at least January 2, 2021.-

Milwaukee, Wis. – November 19, 2020 – Due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the community, the Milwaukee Art Museum has closed to the public as of November 19, 2020, until at least January 2, 2021.

The Museum recently received clarity on the restrictions outlined in the Milwaukee Public Health Order 4.2 and is joining Milwaukee museums in putting the safety of visitors and staff first. In the interim, staff will continue working from home, ensuring that the Museum remains a vital resource for the community both online today and when we reopen our doors in the future. Updates can always be found on the Museum’s website, mam.org.

Visitors who have already reserved Museum admission tickets will be refunded to the card on which the purchase was made. During the closure, all virtual programming on mam.org will continue as planned, and visitors are encouraged to participate in the Museum’s online content, including virtual tours of gallery spaces, art projects for kids and families and interviews with artists.

Since reopening in July, the Museum has successfully practiced safety protocols, including robust cleaning procedures, hand sanitizing stations, signs encouraging social distancing, a face-covering requirement and a dedicated pathway through the first-floor galleries.
