COVID-19 Update: Museums at W&L to remain closed during Summer 2020

President Will Dudley has accepted recommendations from a Summer Task Force that focuses the University's attention on creating a safe environment for our community during the summer and fall. As a result, the Museums at W&L will remain closed to external visitors this summer.

During this phase, and in keeping with other campus buildings, students and members of the general public will not be allowed in the museums. 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, the Governor's order to wear a mask while inside buildings, and current limitations on the size of gatherings.

A decision regarding the fall status of our buildings will be made in July after the President makes his final announcement on the format of the fall term and after we have more information on the best practices to fight the spread of the coronavirus.

We appreciate the support of our visitors and online audience during this difficult time. Please follow the Museums at W&L on Facebook and bookmark our website for the most up-to-date announcements on reopening.
