COVID-19 Response

Due to concerns around coronavirus, the Fitchburg Art Museum has made the difficult decision to close to the public until further notice. All events are canceled or postponed. We will continue to monitor and assess the evolving situation. 

Please know that FAM is committed to reopening as soon as the situation allows. Once conditions improve, FAM will be here for you so that you can reconnect with us, with each other, with your creativity, and with our inspiring works of art – in a Museum that is safe, clean, welcoming, and beautiful. Museums are special places for healing, personal transformation, and community building, and FAM will again be here for everyone. We look forward to this day, and we will keep you posted when we are able to set a date to open our doors and reschedule the programs and events that you have come to love and rely on.

Fitchburg Art Museum plans to maintain a creative relationship with our valued audience. Follow us on social media for daily #MuseumFromHome updates and explore our digital programming on our website here. For more information please contact:
