What do I need to know?


The Gardner Museum follows guidelines and mandates issued by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and the City of Boston. Visitors, staff, volunteers and vendors are no longer required to wear face coverings in the Museum. Proof of vaccination status is not required. Social distancing is no longer mandated in the Museum or on its grounds.

In line with state and local guidance, we advise anyone who is unvaccinated, and encourage anyone who feels more comfortable, to continue wearing a mask. All visitors and staff have the right to a safe, respectful experience and we appreciate your adherence to these policies.

Programs and concerts in Calderwood Hall are held at standard capacity, and many are sold out, so please do expect all seats to be filled.
