Palmer Museum Of Art To Close Second Floor For Summer Repairs

Penn State’s Palmer Museum of Art will close its second-floor galleries starting Monday, June 7, to complete “much-needed” repairs on the facility’s building envelope.

The second-floor galleries, which feature the special exhibition and permanent collection, will be closed through August 26 and will reopen on August 27. However, first-floor galleries and the museum store will remain open to the public.

“We are taking the summer months to address critical needs in our facility that relate to the vapor barrier on the second floor of the museum,” Palmer Museum Director Erin M Coe said in a statement. “We have carefully planned this temporary closure and the needed repair work in close consultation with Penn State’s Office of Physical Plant and a building envelope consultant. We hope the public will take this opportunity to visit our breathtaking exhibition of American Impressionist paintings and bask in the ‘summer light’ of these sun-drenched canvases.”

Visitors can reserve tickets to visit the Palmer Museum of Art online. It’s open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Friday; from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday; and from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday. The museum is closed on Mondays, Tuesdays, and some holidays.

Last month, Penn State’s Board of Trustees voted to fund constructing a new and larger Palmer Museum of Art near the Arboretum. Construction is expected to begin this summer.
