News   
Museum Closed: US Open
As many of you may know, the Queens Museum is located only a few hundred feet from the US Open. Due to the heightened security for the tennis tournament, access to the Museum is affected. As such, we will be closed from Wednesday, August 29 until the September 9 conclusion of the tournament.
We apologize for the inconvenience and will use this downtime to install an exciting exhibition season. We hope you will join us on October 7 for the opening of Queens International 2018: Volumes.
