The Nasher Museum, in keeping with Duke University’s campus-wide health and safety measures to curb the spread of the COVID-19 virus, will remain closed through the spring semester. All public in-person events and tours have been cancelled. The museum is open by appointment to Duke faculty, classes and students during the Spring 2021 semester.
The health and safety of museum visitors, staff and volunteers is our top priority. Please check back for further updates. The university has adopted policies regarding classes, residential life, travel, events and campus visitors. Find the latest information on Duke’s Coronavirus Response website.
