COVID-19: Health and Safety Updates

The American Museum of Western Art has temporarily closed until further notice as of the end of day March 13th

After careful monitoring of recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and state and local government agencies regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), AMWA has chosen to close temporarily due to the safety and health of all visitors and staff. This closure is to support the city of Denver and the state of Colorado’s efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19. After the closure to the public, the Museum will undergo proper cleaning measures to prepare for reopening at a later date.

The Museum website will be updated with the most up to date information. In the meantime, we encourage our visitors to engage with some of artwork from AMWA’s collection found here and history of the American West, found here.

Any scheduled programming will be rescheduled to later this year. We thank you for your patience and understanding during this time and look forward to when we can welcome you back into the Museum.
