Currier Museum of Art will close temporarily for the safety of our staff and communities

A message from Alan Chong, director and CEO:

The Currier Museum of Art is temporarily closing to the public in order to keep its community and staff safe during this difficult period. We are monitoring the situation regularly and hope to announce our reopening plans in late January.

But the museum remains open digitally. Our many programs provide engaging educational opportunities for everyone. Please see below for links. We will continue to deepen our content, with a new Frank Lloyd Wright site launching soon.

Our region is experiencing an alarming spike in cases, with the new variant of covid-19 as an added threat. The Currier Museum is doing all it can to avoid burdening health resources. Many museums in Massachusetts and Maine have also temporarily shut their doors as a precaution.

I appreciate your understanding.
We look forward to welcoming guests back in person when it is safe for everyone.

Alan Chong
