Questions/Comments About The Website


The Arthur M. Sackler Gallery will be open during standard operating hours, 10:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., during Inauguration weekend, January 20 through 22, 2017.

We are excited to reopen the Freer in October 2017, following a renovation to allow us to better present our art and serve our visitors. The Sackler remains open, with a full lineup of exhibitions and events both in the museum and around DC. For your safety, all visitors will have their bags checked. See the complete list of restricted items and bag sizes.
