The Parrish is Here For You

Out of an abundance of caution and in support of efforts to slow the spread of Covid-19, the Museum shop, café, and galleries are temporarily closed with plans to reopen in early spring, based on guidelines and recommendations at that time. The Meadow and the Field of Dreams remain open daily and free to all visitors, and we will continue to offer a robust schedule of online museum experiences.

The Museum’s outdoor sculpture exhibition is located throughout its 14 acres.
