COVID Guidelines

GRAM is now open! We’re eager for visitors to explore the Museum again, and there are several changes to our operations as we consider the health and safety of all guests, volunteers, and staff.

Though things may be a bit different during your visit, GRAM remains committed to connecting people through art, creativity, and design, and keeping our visitors safe is the most important step in opening our doors.
