Masks are encouraged at all times inside of the Museum and reservations are required to visit our galleries. Get your free passes.

The BMA galleries and BMA Shop are now open until 9 p.m. every Thursday. 


Now you’ll have even more time to linger among the collection, visit ticketed exhibitions, and browse gifts at the Shop.

As part of the Endowment for the Future, launched in 2020, we identified five ways to achieve museum-wide change. These goals included offering free admission for special exhibitions, raising salaries for all staff members, and increasing access to art by expanding our open hours.

With the help of generous funding and support, we are now able to move forward with extended Museum hours one evening per week—a step we hope will help eliminate barriers that may prevent community members from visiting. While you’re here, stop by the East Lobby to pick up BMA Makers, a free art-making kit designed for adults inspired by works on view.

We look forward to seeing you during our new evening hours this spring. Reserve your night at the Museum.


Extended Evening Hours are generously supported by The Rouse Company Foundation.
