Gallery Closings

Several galleries dedicated to African, Oceanic, and Ancient American art are temporarily closed as part of a Level 1 renovation project. When these reopen in 2020, the galleries will include an expanded presentation of Oceanic art. To help find your way around during the project, please pick up an updated gallery map at the Visitor Services desk or ask a member of the Museum staff for assistance.
