MFAH Visiting Update

*The event has already taken place on this date: Sat, 05/23/2020
The galleries of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and our house museums—Rienzi and Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens—reopen to the public Saturday, May 23. Each of us plays a role in a safe reopening, with social distancing, face masks, and additional health and safety precautions in place. Virtual films, family activities, and other online programs continue to be offered twice weekly through the #MFAH at Home Virtual Experience.

We have been thoughtfully preparing for our reopening, following the release of Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s Reopen Texas guidelines, which authorized museums to open as of May 1. This has been a thorough process, one that considers many variables and takes into account state and city guidelines, close coordination with City Hall and Houston Museum District colleagues, and ongoing discussions with our own staff and museum peers around the world. We recognize that circumstances may change at any moment. But we remain hopeful that we will be able to serve our public under the safest possible conditions and under new norms, ones to which Houstonians across the city are already becoming accustomed.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Museum now, and again when our many on-site programs, films, events, and activities can resume. In the meantime, we hope you will visit the Museum, Rienzi, and Bayou Bend beginning Saturday, and enjoy all of the art that the MFAH has to offer.
