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.
