Welcome Back! We missed you!

The Farnsworth has reopened its galleries! To ensure the safest and most welcoming experience, and in keeping with the Maine Department of Economic & Community Development Stage 2 reopening guidelines, visitation will be through timed-ticket entry only. Timed tickets are available on this page, and visitors are required to reserve their tickets in advance. Staff is also available to help you make your reservation by calling us at 207-596-6457 ext 130 during open hours.

The Farnsworth has created a one-way path through the museum which will help promoting physical distancing, while guiding you through all nine of our spacious galleries.

In addition, the museum requests that all visitors agree to the following guidelines before their visit:

 Not to enter the building if they have a cough or fever

• Wear face coverings at all times


• Maintain a minimum six-foot distance while following the prescribed one-way path


• Use hand sanitizer upon entering the museum and at stations throughout their visit.

Those visitors that are unable to wear a face covering for medical reasons are encouraged to contact Visitors Services and Retail Manager Janice Gates to set up a private visit.

The Farnsworth Homestead and the Olson House will both be closed to the public for the 2020 season.
