COVID-19 Updates and Temporary Closure

In keeping with the University of Toronto’s efforts to encourage social distancing as a measure to help disrupt the chain of transmission of COVID-19, the Art Museum has made the decision to suspend our exhibitions and public programs for the time being.

While the Art Museum plans to re-open on Wednesday, October 28, the safety of the community remains our priority. We are closely following the guidelines set by the government and the University of Toronto and will respond accordingly as the situation evolves.

Accessibility & Admission 

The Art Museum at University of Toronto welcomes all visitors and are continuously working towards improving accessibility to our two gallery spaces, exhibitions, and programs. For our full accessibility guide, visit our Accessibility page.

Admission to the Art Museum is always free.

The Art Museum is comprised of the Justina M. Barnicke Gallery at Hart House and the University of Toronto Art Centre at University College. Exhibitions and programs span across both galleries, which are located just steps apart, at the North West corner of Hart House Circle, adjacent to the Hart House Tower.

Additionally, the Art Museum produces a number of programs in other locations within and beyond the University, including at Hart House and at the Jackman Humanities Institute, in conjunction with the Institute’s annual theme.
