JACKSON, Wyo. — The National Museum of Wildlife Art (NMWA) will be closed from January 21 until February 1, 2021, to help alleviate the spread of COVID-19.

“With cases climbing both in our county and beyond, we feel it is best to not only close the doors but also allow our staff to work from home and to stay within their ‘household groups’ (as per town Recommendation #11),” the museum said in a press release.

“This has been hard,” said Steve Seamons, Museum Director. “And it continues to be difficult, but we have a responsibility to our staff and visitors alike to keep them safe and healthy. Since the beginning of the pandemic, our first priority has been the safety and wellness of our visitors, volunteers, staff, board, and the entire community and we cannot forget that now.”
