Urgent Museum Notice

Coronavirus Updates

Find information and updates about the museum’s response to COVID-19

As a result of guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and DC Health regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus), and the high priority we place on the well-being of our visitors, volunteers, and staff, the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) is extending its temporary closure until further notice. Due to the developing nature of the situation, NMWA will continue to reassess its plans as needed. Updates will be provided here as they become available.

All onsite gallery talks, tours, and public programs are canceled or postponed. The Museum Shop is also closed. If you purchased museum admission tickets online, you may use your tickets any time in the next six months. If you require a refund, email info@nmwa.org.

In the meantime, we invite the public to enjoy our social media accounts and and visit our NMWA@Home page for a growing 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 at the museum as soon as possible to enjoy the power and beauty of the arts. Be well and stay safe.
