We're open #MemorialDay from 10 am to 6 pm as we begin our new Summer Bonus Hour! From Memorial Day through Labor Day, Crystal Bridges’ galleries will open at 10 am every day (closed Tuesdays). http://bit.ly/1HBElDp

DId you know that during the school year, we host free school field trips through the galleries every weekday morning? These tours are held before Museum public hours, which is why our galleries open at 11 am on weekdays, and at 10 am on weekends (closed Tuesdays). To date, more than 75,000 students have enjoyed the Museum during these morning hours! This summer, when school field trips are not taking place, we’re offering guests a bonus hour in the galleries. Come enjoy five centuries of American art and an extra hour of viewing time!
