MFA Cancels Programming

Suspended Through August 31

By: - Apr 04, 2020

We are thinking of you, our Museum family, during this challenging time, and are grateful to be part of this extraordinary community. Due to ongoing concerns regarding COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all of the Museum’s events and programs through August 31, 2020. We came to this decision with great care—in consultation with community and cultural partners, performers, and city officials—to put the safety of our staff, volunteers, and visitors first. Where feasible, we are rescheduling programs for the future.


If you purchased tickets to any upcoming MFA event, you will receive a follow-up e-mail with instructions on how to request a refund or donate a portion of the value of your tickets to the MFA Fund. As the Museum weathers this unprecedented closure, a gift in any amount helps us resume outstanding programs in the fall to share art with Boston’s students, families, and the creative community.


Meanwhile, we hope you will discover new ways to connect with art and artists through our online offerings. Please explore our website and social media channels as resources for Museum updates, as well as a wide range of content—videos, slideshows, podcasts, and a few lighthearted moments.


Thank you for your continued understanding and support, and we look forward to welcoming you back to the MFA when it is safe to do so.
