Dear Friends,

The health and safety of our visitors, staff, and volunteers is our top priority. During the present health crisis, we are doing our part by temporarily suspending all public activities–the Farnsworth galleries and library are closed and all public programs, school visits, and facility rentals are canceled. We plan to resume normal operations as soon as it is deemed safe for our entire community to do so. We will continue to update you as the situation develops. 

Please know that the work of the museum continues. Our entire team is still in place, working remotely behind the scenes to make much of our nationally recognized content available to the widest possible audience. Current as well as future projects demand the attention of our terrific staff. No Farnsworth employees have been furloughed or laid off.

We know that museums are places of inspiration and solace even in difficult times. We look forward to rescheduling our tours, programs, and events and to welcoming you back safely to the Farnsworth. While the museum is closed, please follow our Facebook and Instagram feeds to enjoy daily content that celebrates Maine’s role in American art. By subscribing to our e-newsletter you’ll receive links to podcasts, videos, and lectures, and even test your knowledge through our art quizzes. Explore our collection, shop in our online store, or take a virtual tour of the Olson House and Farnsworth Homestead. Let’s stay connected through our mutual love of art.

Please continue to check here for updates. If you would like to reach us, please visit our staff listing here. For general information, please call 207-596-6457.
