Welcome Back!

We are thrilled to reopen and excited to share our new exhibitions and remarkable collection with you. To ensure the health and well-being of our guests and staff, we have put into place a number ​​of guidelines to make sure your visit is not only fun and inspiring but also safe.​ 

Please note that the Addison Gallery is operating in compliance with the travel order set out by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Under this order, visitors from "lower risk" states​ are welcome to enter Massachusetts without quarantining. Visitors from all other states must complete the Massachusetts travel form and meet the quarantine requirements for 14 days or produce a negative COVID-19 test result administered 72 hours prior to their arrival in Massachusetts. The Addison asks all visitors to attest that they are in compliance with the Massachusetts guidelines. If you cannot confirm your compliance with the Massachusetts travel order, then we regret we are unable to provide entrance at this time. Further information can be foun​d at



Before visiting the museum, please note the following:

​The Addison is open to the public on Friday and Saturday, 10:00 am to 5:00 pm, and Sunday, 1:00 to 5:00 pm. Admission is still free, but advance reservations are required. You will be asked to present your ticket to an attendant at the museum, complete a sym​ptom survey, and attest that you are in ​compliance with the Massachusetts travel order before entering. 

​Although the Addison Gallery is open, the rest o​​f the Phillips Academy campus is closed to the public. ​Please head straight to the museum when arriving, and return directly to your vehicle when leaving. Note that masks must be worn at all times when on the campus, outdoors and indoors​.
