We are committed to the health and safety of our staff and community.

We are delighted to announce we will reopen to the public at a limited capacity on September 23, with two weeks of early access to members starting September 9. Become a member today to enjoy free admission year-round and for special access to the Museum from September 9–20.

Timed general admission tickets for September 23–October 18 are now available.


The well-being of our visitors and staff is our top priority. We have developed protocols with enhanced safety measures including:

• We are implementing a timed reservation system to limit the number of visitors at the Museum. All visits must be scheduled in advance.

• We will offer a morning and afternoon session for visitors, and close for an hour mid-day for a thorough cleaning of all spaces. Enhanced cleaning will take place throughout the day.

• All staff and visitors are required to wear face masks at all times and to stay at least six feet apart from different households.

• The Cafe will be closed, and the Shop is temporarily relocating to the more spacious lower-level studio.

A full list of safety measures is available on our Visit page.

When we reopen, we will be operating at a reduced capacity with no in-person programs or events. Explore our digital programs on the Calender.

Any further updates will be announced here, and by email and social media (@noguchimuseum).

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.
