COVID-19 Update: Museums at W&L to remain closed for the remainder of 2020

Washington and Lee University has convened several committees to determine how best to ensure the safety of our community during the current public health crisis. As a result, the campus - including the Museums at W&L - will be closed to all external visitors through December 2020.

During this time, members of the general public will not be allowed in the museums (or any campus buildings). Visitors may tour outdoors, visiting our historic campus and the grounds of our museums, though no public restrooms will be available. ALL persons who come to campus and to University-owned and rented buildings and facilities must comply with six-foot social distancing, wear a mask while inside buildings, and any state mandated limitations on the size of gatherings. A decision regarding the 2021 opening status of campus and our museums will be made once we have more information on the best practices to fight the spread of the coronavirus in the coming months.

We appreciate the support of our visitors and online audience during this difficult time. Please follow the Museums at W&L at https://facebook.com/wlu.museums for the most up-to-date announcements on reopening as well as online offerings of museum programs and activities.
