History | Art | Culture

History|Art|Culture is an educational web series that presents artwork from the permanent collections of the Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery in their historical and cultural contexts.


As renovation work continues in the Freer Gallery, the Sackler Gallery also will close on July 10, 2017. This museum-wide closure will allow us to completely reinstall our exhibitions and revitalize features to improve your visit. Both spaces will reopen on October 14, 2017, when we will welcome the public back to the Freer|Sackler: two galleries, one destination. For your safety, all visitors will have their bags checked. See the complete list of restricted items and bag sizes.
