The Worcester Art Museum has begun the next major step in its evolution, made possible through supporters of A Bold Step Forward. An extensive number of renovations, upgrades, and repairs are underway in an effort that will transform and preserve our historic campus for generations to come. This may mean some spaces or galleries are temporarily closed during your visit. See which galleries are currently closed.

These projects are only possible thanks to the generous support of our donors and funders. Learn more about how you can support A Bold Step Forward.
