Plan your trip: We are excited to reopen the Freer on October 7, 2017, once our renovation is complete. The Sackler is open and as dynamic as ever, with a full lineup of exhibitions and events in the museum and around town.
The Freer|Sackler is home to some of the world's most important holdings of Asian art. In the Freer, you'll also find late nineteenth-century works by James McNeill Whistler and his American contemporaries, while the Sackler hosts contemporary art from Asia as well as international loan exhibitions. Our entire collection is available digitally on Open F|S.
