The Haggerty Museum of Art on the campus of Marquette University will reopen for visits by members of the public on Tuesday, May 18. The museum will be open from Tuesday through Saturday, from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.

Haggerty Museum of Art Director and Chief Curator Susan Longhenry states, "The Haggerty has been actively engaging Marquette University students since last August, and we've conducted many online programs for community members. However, there is no substitute for in-person experiences with original works of art. We're thrilled to fully re-activate the Haggerty as the place where creativity, intellect, and social justice intersect for all members of our communities."

All museum visitors will be required to wear face masks while on Marquette University's campus, both indoors and outdoors. Disposable masks will be provided to Haggerty Museum of Art visitors who do not have their own face coverings. Patrons are asked to please stay home if they are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, or if they have had contact with anyone who has tested positive or is a presumptive positive for COVID-19.
