About this event

Register to visit the UK Art Museum!

As always, Museum admission is free. Pre-registering helps us track attendance data, maintain safe visitor capacity, and keep the Front Desk germ-free.

Each of us plays a role in the safe reopening of the Art Museum, complying with social distancing, face masks, and additional health and safety precautions. Virtual family activities and other online programs continue to be offered through our website and social media pages.

We recognize that circumstances may change at any moment, but we remain hopeful that we will be able to serve the campus and Lexington community under the safest possible conditions.

NOTE: General Admission reservations are limited to 10 per person. To book a visit for a group of 11 or more or for a more guided experience, please use our Tour Request Form instead:
