COVID-19 Update on Admittance

Amherst College is closely monitoring the spread of COVID-19. Following campus policies, the Mead Art Museum will only be open for Amherst College class visits and study room appointments. Unfortunately, this means our galleries are closed and public programs are cancelled until further notice. 

We understand this news may be disappointing. We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to welcoming you back to the Mead as soon as we are able.
