Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art announced today that the museum will temporarily close effective 6 p.m. Monday, March 16 and the Momentary will close today at 7 p.m. to contain the spread of COVID-19. Both venues will remain closed until March 31. Programs and events for March and April have also been cancelled.

Crystal Bridges and the Momentary will continue to assess the situation daily and will share updates as they become available, according to a press release.

Visitors who have purchased tickets to programs, exhibitions or tours can expect a full refund that will be issued automatically. Due to the high volume of programs, it may take up to 10 business days to see the credit, according to a press release.

Crystal Bridges has up to five miles of trails and grounds that will remain open, offering visitors the opportunity to view artwork in a natural setting; for those visiting the trails, follow CDC recommendations. As a museum focused on access to art, there are also Virtual Reality resources available HERE and the collection available through eMuseum HERE.
