The Gardner Museum will close to the public this winter from November 15, 2011 through January 18, 2012. During this period, the museum will complete the final stages of construction and preservation work—including the restoration of the Tapestry Room and a decade-long upgrade of lighting in the historic galleries. Museum staff will also move a number of visitor-related and administrative functions to the new building and install three opening exhibitions. The closure period will end on Thursday, January 19, 2012 when the museum opens the Renzo Piano wing and refreshed historic galleries to the public.
