Art Museum changes hours of operation


Effective Sept. 11, the Springfield Art Museum is shifting hours to remain open later on weekdays to provide more options for visitors and better serve the community.

“Later hours during the week will allow the museum to build its presence in the ‘nightlife’ of the community, attracting people who might attend after the traditional working hours of 9 to 5,” said Director Nick Nelson. “We hope to further cement the museum as a destination for education, entertainment, and as a gathering place for our community.” 

The change also provides the museum with the opportunity to expand programming hours for classes and other events during the week. Weekend hours will remain unchanged. In addition to the shift in hours, the museum is now closed on Mondays and Tuesdays for internal work, such as exhibition installation and maintenance, classes and programs preparation, facility maintenance and staff training. 

The new hours of operation are:

Sundays: 1-5 p.m.
Mondays and Tuesdays: CLOSED
Wednesdays – Fridays: Noon-8 p.m.
Saturdays: 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
