Thanks to high attendance and requests from visitors to access the museum earlier, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art is expanding its hours beginning Nov. 23. On Saturdays and Sundays, the museum will now be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (previously opened at 11 a.m.). On weekdays, the lobby, library and coffee bar will open at 10 a.m., with the remainder of the museum opening at 11 a.m. as usual.

“We opted to expand our weekend hours due to the number of guests arriving early on Saturdays and Sundays and waiting for the galleries to open,” explained Crystal Bridges Executive Director Rod Bigelow. “Clearly there was an interest in earlier weekend hours, and we are happy to accommodate. Similarly, guests arriving early during the week can now visit the library or enjoy a cup of coffee before venturing into the galleries.”

New Museum Hours:

Monday, Thursday: 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. (Lobby, library, coffee bar open at 10 a.m.)

Tuesday: Closed

Wednesday, Friday: 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. (Lobby, library, coffee bar open at 10 a.m.)

Saturday, Sunday: 10 am. – 6 p.m.

Closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Trails and Grounds are open from sunrise to sunset daily.
