Temporary Closure of the National Museum of Mexican Art

In light of the current situation, Museum leadership has decided that the Museum will remain closed through April 30th. We continue to keep the best interest of our staff, community, and visitors in mind as we make this difficult decision and will monitor the situation on a weekly basis.

With the Museum being closed through the month of April, we are faced with the reality of postponing and canceling a line up of wonderful events. It is with a heavy heart that we share that the remainder of the Sor Juana Festival and the Big Read program is canceled. We anticipate presenting the exhibition Frida Kahlo, Her Photos when we re-open. Please be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for updates.

We are thankful to everyone who has shown their support and understanding during this unprecedented time. It reminds us that we are truly in this together.
