Freer Renovation: What's Happening?

We are excited to reopen the Freer in October 2017, following a renovation to make long-needed upgrades to our infrastructure. The renovation also is an opportunity to re-present our collections and to improve the visitor experience throughout the museum.

Keep the Connection

The Sackler remains open to present not-to-be-missed special exhibitions, and events are held both in the museum and at venues throughout the DC area. You can explore the full Freer|Sackler collections through our digital offerings:
