We’re Here to Help
The Whitney’s top priority is the health and well-being of our visitors and staff. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public space where people are present. We cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed to COVID-19 during your visit, and all those entering the Whitney do so at their own risk as to such exposure. Read all our visitor policies.

We may share your name and email address with a governmental health authority should that information be requested for COVID-19 contact tracing purposes. If you do not want your name or email address used for these purposes, please email

Visitor Conduct
Whitney staff and visitors have the right to an environment free from abusive, threatening, or inappropriate behavior. The Museum reserves the right to remove any person acting in an unacceptable or inappropriate manner.
