Morris Museum Temporarily Closed to the Public


The Morris Museum will close to the public, beginning Tuesday, March 17, 2020 until further notice. Responding to the COVID-19 crisis — in accordance with federal, state, and local recommendations — we consider the health and safety of our staff and public to be our first priority.

While our doors are closed, we look forward to finding unique, creative ways to serve you, our public. We’ll be exploring virtual opportunities to connect you to the dozens of artists and performers, whom we had planned to showcase for you in person this spring. We’re working on engaging activities that can occupy homebound children and caretakers. We may even send you some recommendations for at-home reading, listening, and watching. Of course, we’ll also be busy preparing for the happy day when we can welcome you through our doors again!

Your ongoing support and understanding will remain more vital to us than ever as we work through the challenges of the weeks ahead. Museum members, ticket holders, artists, and vendors can expect to hear directly from the relevant museum representative with details that may affect you. I ask for your patience as these needed contacts are made. Do reach out, however, if you have urgent questions that require an immediate response.

In the meantime, I invite you to follow and engage with us through our social-media platforms. In times like these, we know across history that the Arts have always been a meaningful mirror of society and an outlet for personal expression. I hope the Morris Museum, in the days ahead, can play some small role in maintaining our human connection, uplifting our spirits, and empowering us all to be our better selves.
