The National Gallery of Art has implemented enhanced health and safety measures, but we cannot guarantee that any visitor will not contract COVID-19 while on Gallery premises. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place. Visitors to the Gallery voluntarily assume all risks related to COVID-19 exposure.
All visitors to the District of Columbia must follow Mayor Bowser’s Order 2020-081, which requires travelers to the District of Columbia from certain high-risk areas to self-quarantine for 14 days upon arrival. The information about states requiring quarantine is updated regularly, so please be sure to check prior to planning your visit. We do hope you will be able to visit the Gallery.
Visitors agree to abide by the guidelines on the Gallery’s website and by all instructions posted at the Gallery or provided by staff during the visit. If a visitor or a member of their party fails to follow the Gallery’s guidelines and instructions, they may be denied entry or required to leave the premises.
Each of us plays a role in a successful and safe reopening. Thank you for your patience and commitment to honoring our new safety protocols.
