COVID-19 Health & Safety Update: Museum Locations Closed Until Further Notice

Our highest priority is the safety of our visitors, staff, volunteers, and collaborators. In order to protect them and to support the nationwide effort to contain the spread of COVID-19, the Philadelphia Museum of Art is closed until further notice.

Also closed at this time are sites administered by the Philadelphia Museum of Art: the Perelman Building, the Rodin Museum, and historic houses Cedar Grove and Mount Pleasant.

Additionally, all public programs and events have been canceled or postponed until further notice.

The museum takes its civic role very seriously. We made the decision to close our locations in consultation with city, state, and federal government and health officials.

We will continue to follow recommended guidelines to protect visitors and the community, revising our plans in response to the changing situation. Please check back for updates.
