The Michener Art Museum is inviting audiences from far and wide to see the Museum in a new light beginning October 1, 2020. The Michener will be adding later hours on Thursdays, staying open until 8PM for After Dark. The evening is designed for all to enjoy, whether it be a date night or a family fun outing. The Terrace Café will also be re-opening and visitors will be able to savor pre-packaged meals inside or in the serene, outdoor Patricia D. Pfundt Sculpture Garden. Kids can explore the galleries with Art Discovery tote bags, chock full of fun activities, available for purchase at the Museum Shop. Additionally, the Museum will open early on Sundays for special Members-only hours from 10AM to 12NOON.

The Michener is also introducing a new program called Private Eyes, offering the ability to rent the entire Museum for 2-hour bookings on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for those who are not ready for public settings. With only the Museum staff present, this private, safe venue is perfect for any occasion from holiday family get-togethers to corporate retreats and is the ultimate gift for art and museum lovers.
