The Rahr-West Art Museum strives to be a welcoming and safe place for all. Due to lowered community spread of COVID-19, we are excited to welcome patrons back to the museum.

We are committed to providing a safe and comfortable experience. All patrons are required to wear a mask at all times while in the museum. We have re-instituted the ArtPath, a single direction circuit throughout the museum, which encourages exploration while maintaining safe social distancing. At this time, no classes or facility rentals are available, although we hope to begin these activities once again later in 2021. Above all else, if you are not feeling well, please stay home and seek medical attention if necessary.

The Rahr-West Art Museum will begin operating with normal business hours, Tuesday thru Friday from 10am-4pm, Saturday and Sunday from 11am-4pm. The museum is closed Mondays.

10am to 4pm

11am to 4pm

The Rahr-West Art Museum is a City of Manitowoc facility. We are an admission free museum. Donations are gratefully accepted.
