Temporary Closure of the Bronx Museum

The Bronx Museum of the Arts is temporarily closed to the public in response to the Coronavirus outbreak. The health and well-being of our staff, community, and visitors is our number one priority.

COVID-19 News and Resources

Our borough has been especially affected by COVID-19, with the highest per-case fatality rate in NYC. The Bronx Museum is committed to helping our community during this uncertain time. This page will be regularly updated with resources for those in need.


Founded in 1971, The Bronx Museum of the Arts is an internationally recognized cultural destination that presents innovative contemporary art exhibitions and education programs and is committed to promoting cross-cultural dialogues for diverse audiences. 


The Bronx Museum of the Arts is a contemporary art museum that connects diverse audiences to the urban experience through its permanent collection, special exhibitions, and education programs that strive to reflect the borough's dynamic communities.


The Bronx Museum of the Arts opened in 1971 in the public rotunda of the Bronx County Courthouse, at Grand Concourse and 161st Street. A decade later, it moved north to 165th Street into a former synagogue purchased and donated by the City of New York. 

Permanent Collection

The Bronx Museum Permanent Collection is composed of over 2,000 artworks encompassing all media, and assembled under a policy that reflects the institution’s commitment to its surrounding communities and audiences.
