The Museum is open online while the building is closed. We hope to welcome you back to the building in the Fall. In the meantime, the Museum staff has created a number of virtual resources for you to explore from home. Via the links below, you can view works of art from the exhibitions and create your own art using our family activities, as well as access the online collection database.
