Middlebury College Museum of Art

Student and Faculty Class Visits and Timed Ticketing

Though the College ended the fall semester with fully remote instruction in an attempt to curb Covid cases on campus, we are optimistic that we will be able to resume in-person appointments and class visits in January.

When we reopen our permanent collection galleries on Tuesday, January 11 access to the museum will at first be limited to members of the Middlebury College campus community, but when we open our spring 2022 exhibits on Friday, January 28 we hope to be able to continue welcoming members of the general public on a limited basis, beginning with current members of the Friends of the Art Museum. We encourage you to check back often for updates.

Due to limited capacity in our galleries, everyone visiting the museum must make a free reservation in advance via our Microsoft Bookings platform. Because reservations can book in quickly, we encourage you to plan ahead.

Faculty looking to conduct class or group visits in the museum should submit a reservation request through our class/group visit request form.

Museum Visitation Guidelines:

  • All visitors are expected to be fully vaccinated or to have a valid medical or religious exemption. In addition, please do not enter the museum if you have signs of respiratory illness or have recently been in close contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19. If you have symptoms of COVID-19, please seek medical attention.
  • Masks must be worn in the museum at all times.
  • Check in with the receptionist upon arrival.
  • Leave large backpacks, food/drink, etc. in the cubbies on the ground floor of the museum.
  • Stools and clipboards are available on each level.
  • Our friendly security will be moving through the museum to help protect the art and make sure that everyone follows COVID safety regulations. They are also happy to answer questions; say hi!
  • Museum visits are for a maximum of one hour, beginning at the time marked on your reservation. Although you may arrive at any time during your reservation block, you will be asked to leave the museum when your scheduled reservation comes to an end, so that staff can prepare for subsequent visitors. You are welcome to book another free reservation, later in the same day or on a different day.

How to reserve a museum visit time through Microsoft Bookings:

  • Visit our bookings page and select the date you would like to visit, then make a time slot selection from the hours that are available for that date.
  • Friends wanting to visit at the same time should book separate reservations.
  • When you click the blue “Book” button to complete the reservation you should see a message that says “Thank you for booking with us. You will receive a confirmation email shortly.” If you receive an error message instead, simply refresh the page, re-enter your information, and resubmit. If you continue to receive an error message, it may mean that the timeslot you’re trying to book is no longer available.
  • If you experience technical difficulties or need further assistance with our Bookings platform, please email MuseumReservations@middleburycollege.onmicrosoft.com with the full details of your issue.
