Gregg Museum Relaxes Timed Entries

Beginning April 13, patrons will no longer be required to make reservations for their visit. However, groups of 15-plus are asked to call ahead to prevent crowding in the galleries.

In light of North Carolina’s improving trends, increases in vaccine distribution, and in accordance with Gov. Roy Cooper’s announcement allowing museums to open to full capacity, the Gregg Museum of Art & Design is very pleased to announce it will begin easing some of its visiting restrictions.

Beginning April 13, individuals and groups of 15 or fewer will no longer need to make “reservations” in order to visit the Gregg Museum in person. The museum does ask that groups larger than 15 visitors book ahead so they can stagger arrival times in order to prevent crowding in any single gallery. To ensure that our guests and staff remain safe and comfortable, the current guided path for visiting museum galleries will continue, using indoor directional signs. We plan to leave plexiglass shields and hand sanitizer stations in place, and we ask that all visitors continue with the three W’s: wear a mask, wait 6 feet apart, and wash hands often.

We are very excited to be able to offer more opportunities to visit the Gregg, and want to do so carefully by gradually easing restrictions. We look forward to seeing more visitors, and eventually offering more in-person programming. Current exhibitions are Objects of Intention– photographs by Stephen Althouse, through May 9; Animate Earth by Andy Nasisse – ceramics and photographs, through June 27; and A Thousand Throws – an art installation by Daniel Johnston, through July 18.

Current museum hours are Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
