One Of America’s Most Popular Museums Is Closing This Summer
If you want to visit The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City, you better get in line soon. The landmark attraction is closing this summer for renovations.
The MoMA is scheduled to close its doors from June 15 to October 21, 2019. This closure is part of a $400 million renovation plan that will involve updating the galleries and rehanging the entire collection, which is no small feat.
The renovation will also give curators a chance to include more art created by women, Latinos, Asians, African Americans, and other underrepresented artists.
When the museum does reopen in October, it will extend its hours to open at 10 a.m. and close at 9 p.m. the first Thursday of every month. It will also rotate its galleries every six to nine months, so visiting the world-famous museum will always be a fresh experience.
