Middlebury College Museum of Art

Planning Your Visit

As part of the College’s protective measures to keep our community healthy during the pandemic, the museum’s physical spaces remain closed to the general public until further notice. Currently (spring 2021), limited in-person appointments are available for Middlebury students and faculty who need to view museum collections in connection with course work. Students and faculty who need to access the museum can learn more about the process on our Student and Faculty Class Visits and Timed Ticketing page. We hope to be able to welcome more students, faculty, and staff for non-course related visits later this spring if Middlebury’s COVID restrictions allow.

We have taken advantage of the COVID closure to rethink substantially the ways in which we contextualize and display objects and to reinstall our permanent collection galleries in a manner that advances more meaningful juxtapositions. When we are at last able to physically reopen to the public—in the fall of 2021, we hope—we look forward to sharing our newly redesigned galleries with you. Until then, you can visit us right here, online, anytime 24/7. Have a look around. There’s a lot to experience.


Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m.–5 p.m.
Most Thursdays during the academic year we’re open until 8:30 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday, 12 noon–5 p.m.
Closed Mondays; all College holidays; July 4, 2020; August 10–31, 2020; November 26–27, 2020; and December 7, 2020–January 4, 2021.


The Museum is physically accessible. Automatic doors are located directly adjacent to the museum’s main eastern entrance on the rear plaza of the Mahaney Center for the Arts as well as on the north end of the building and the western entrance facing Route 30. A wheelchair is available upon request.

Assisted listening systems are available for gallery talks and can be requested at the reception desk.
