As a result of rising levels of positive COVID-19 (coronavirus) cases in the region and a new order from the Office of the Mayor, the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) will temporarily close to the public beginning December 24, 2020. Out of an abundance of caution for the well-being of our visitors, volunteers and staff, NMWA will remain closed through March 2, 2021. NMWA will continue to reassess its plans as needed. Updates will be provided on this page as they become available. The Museum Shop is also closed but taking online orders at shop.nmwa.org.   

Online classes and virtual programs will continue during this temporary closure. We invite the public to enjoy our social media accounts and visit NMWA @ Home for a list of online resources.

We recognize that cultural venues serve as places of sanctuary and tranquility, especially during stressful times. All of us at NMWA look forward to gathering with you once again to enjoy the power and beauty of the arts. Be well and stay safe.
