Phase 1 of our public reopening begins Saturday, September 19, 2020!
As we all continue to navigate this uncertain world, we invite you to find solace and inspiration at WheatonArts during the first phase of our public reopening. The Museum of American Glass, Down Jersey Folklife Center, and the Museum Stores will open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays & Sundays. The Grounds and the Museum Stores will also be walk-in (non-ticket) accessible for those coming exclusively to shop or stroll.
Our Artist Studios and GateHouse Cafe will remain closed. Due to the State of New Jersey’s mandated size restrictions on outdoor gatherings, there will be no special events or facility rentals until further notice. Education programs, docent tours, and group visits are also canceled until further notice.
To help ensure our staff and guests’ safety, all public surfaces will be cleaned regularly throughout the day, following CDC cleaning guidelines. Our staff is also performing temperature checks every day upon arrival. Please see our timed-ticket options and guidelines for visitors below.
Open on Saturdays & Sundays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
