Plan Your Visit

The well-being of our visitors, staff, interns, docents, volunteers and community is the Harn Museum of Art’s top priority. To safeguard against the spread of COVID-19, the museum will be closed to the public until further notice. All galleries will be closed and classes, programs, events and tours are either postponed or cancelled.

We hope that you will continue to connect with art and the Harn Museum through this page and our social media channels.

We will continue to reassess our plans based on evolving recommendations provided by the University of Florida. Updates to our operating status and scheduling details will be communicated on our website and our various social media channels. We appreciate your support as we all work to ensure the well-being of our community. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.
