The National Gallery of Canada will re-open to onsite visitors on July 18, 2020. Learn more
The National Gallery of Canada is committed to offering a welcoming and safe place for our visitors, employees and volunteers. To that end, in response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we have closed the Gallery and cancelled all events and activities until further notice.
This decision was made in consultation with our government agencies and national museum partners. We regret the impact of this decision on the individuals, families and groups who use our facilities, however, we believe that this approach is in the best interest of all the communities we serve.
We will continue to monitor the situation and post updates on our website, Gallery.ca and on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages. We are grateful to our community of art lovers from across Canada and around the world, and look forward to welcoming you back to the Gallery soon!
