The KMA’s highest priority is the well-being of museum staff, visitors, and the community. We are closed right now but will reopen when we can ensure that everyone who walks through the door is protected from COVID-19. We are working on various reopening scenarios and will announce a timeline soon. In the meantime, stay connected with us through our website and social media channels.
