The National Gallery of Art is Temporarily Closed

The National Gallery of Art and Sculpture Garden is closed to the public as of Saturday, November 21

Out of an abundance of caution and in response to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the region and across the nation, the National Gallery of Art temporarily closed its doors to the public on Saturday, November 21.

We are continually evaluating the situation and will notify the public as soon as we can reopen the National Gallery safely. In the meantime, we continue to offer ways to engage with our collection virtually—through new perspectives shared on our website, through our social media channels, and in our online programs.

To receive National Gallery updates on our operational status, online resources, and programs, sign up for our weekly newsletter, follow our social media channels, or revisit

We look forward to welcoming visitors back as soon as it is safe to do so.
