Increased cleaning and use of hospital-grade air filtration allow the museum to operate safely. The museum asks that all patrons limit their visit to two hours and ONLY visit with members of their own household.

Visitors can enjoy the museum’s new front parking lot and arrival court, as well as the new electric vehicle charging stations. The Cincinnati Art Museum’s outdoor public space, Art Climb, is open daily and does not require tickets.

The museum’s Terrace Café will be temporarily suspended, but the Museum Shop will be open. The Rosenthal Education Center (REC) will be open with limited capacity, and to-go art creating kits are available for visitors (no sit-down artmaking). The Mary R. Schiff Library is open by appointment only. Museum tours will be self-guided, and in-person programs and interactive activities are not currently available.

For those who cannot visit at this time, the museum continues to connect with visitors virtually through CAM Connect, a robust Facebook group that provides unique content including artwork features, videos, guided art-making activities, a virtual book club, and more. In addition, thousands of works of art from the Cincinnati Art Museum’s permanent collection can be viewed online on CAM’s website and through Google Arts & Culture.
