University of Mary Washington Museums Closing

Gari Melchers Home and Studio and the James Monroe Museum are closed to the public until further notice.

The temporary closing is a precautionary measure taken in response to actual and potential increases in COVID- 19 cases and hospitalizations in Virginia and nationally. University Museums leadership, in conjunction with the UMW administration, will determine a reopening date for the museums with regard to the general public health situation, including any applicable local, state, or federal directives.
