We’re Here to Help

The Whitney’s top priority is the health and well-being of our visitors and staff. We are taking enhanced precautions for your safety, including: timed tickets to manage capacity; enhancing cleaning measures; implementing daily health screenings for staff; and requiring staff to wear face coverings.

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.

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.

Please note: To maintain proper physical distancing and ensure an optimal experience for everyone, visitors are strongly encouraged to reserve timed-entry tickets in advance.
