A Message from the BMA

Update on COVID-19 (6/22/2020)

The BMA remains closed. Our sculpture garden will reopen at 10am on Wednesday, June 24. (for more details, click here.) We are working to safely welcome guests back into our galleries. Please check back soon for updates. The BMA has also canceled all public events and programs through May, and our satellite location at Lexington Market will be closed during this time as well. We look forward to reopening to the public for regular museum hours when it deemed safe by state health officials. We encourage you to check our website before planning a visit.

Please follow us on Instagram and Facebook or subscribe to our email list to engage with our 2020 Vision initiative and the works in our collection during these next few weeks.
