The National Gallery of Art, Washington, announced that the West Building will reopen to the public on Friday, May 14. Daily hours will be 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and capacity will be limited to allow for social distancing. Free, timed passes will be required. Passes will be released each Monday at 10:00 a.m. for the following week, starting on Monday, May 10. All previous health and safety guidelines and measures will remain in place, including requirements for masks, social distancing, and credit and debit card payments as well as enhanced cleanings. Visitors will be able to enter only through the 6th Street entrance, but all exits will be open. Most galleries on both floors will be open, with limited exceptions for galleries that do not allow for social distancing. Visitors can also expect other changes since the National Gallery was last open in November 2020.
