How has the programming schedule changed?

​All programs will be cancelled or postponed while the Museum is closed. Please check our events page for additional scheduling updates.

Museums are also vital cultural anchors, which we interpret as a responsibility to facilitate collaboration, educate beyond barriers, and share critical knowledge with communities near and far.

In response to school cancellations, the Museum is making educators available via video conferencing to lead in-gallery instruction with classrooms free of charge. To schedule a virtual classroom experience, contact 


As an additional educational resource, the Museum will publish a series of videos connecting the collection to state standards in art, science, social studies, and language arts.
