COVID-19 Closure Update
In accordance with restrictions announced Monday, November 16, by Philadelphia government and health officials, PAFA, along with other citywide art museums and colleges, will temporarily close for in-person activities, in support of broad-based efforts to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
We are united in the shared service to our community, and while we know this is frustrating, we will work alongside our elected officials and health authorities during this time.
Effective immediately, the Museum is closed. The exhibitions scheduled to open this week—Taking Space, Only Tony, and Roll, Press, Pull—have been postponed and will open in January 2021. Visitors who have purchased advance tickets to the museum have been contacted by email with more information.
PAFA's Core Response Team will continue to monitor the situation and meet virtually throughout the holiday season. Updates will be available on our COVID-19 resource page, pafa.org/coronavirus.
