As we all continue to navigate this uncertain world, we invite you to find solace and inspiration at WheatonArts when we reopen for the season in April 2021. A general admission ticket is needed to visit the Museum of American Glass, Down Jersey Folklife Center, and Artist Studios. The Grounds and the Museum Stores will remain walk-in (non-ticket) accessible for those coming exclusively to shop or stroll.  

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.
