Posted: Mon, Mar 16, 2020 4:31 PM

Vesterheim Museum is closing its doors as of Tuesday.  The closing will include the Museum Store and all programming and classes through April 13.

The 2020 Vesterheim Tours to Norway have been canceled, as have upcoming special gatherings like the Madison Friends of Vesterheim event and the Favorite Things exhibition reception on March 28th, the Twin Cities Friends of Vesterheim event  on April 19th, and the Des Moines Friends of Vesterheim event on April 26th.

While Vesterheim is closed, people can still explore the museum's many online resources, including its virtual galleries and its online shopping through the Museum Store.  Vesterheim staff continues to work on a variety of projects: developing creative ways to serve the public virtually, caring for the collection, rescheduling events, adjusting programming, and maintaining the museum.
