Hours at 215 Centre Street

Beginning on October 27, 2022, MOCA will welcome the general public only on Saturdays from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM ET and two hours before any in-person programming. School tours, corporate tours, and other group tours will continue by appointment throughout the week. The public may also access the museum two hours before any in-person programming. This modified schedule will run until Spring 2023. During this time, we will continue our robust virtual programming as scheduled. Our educational and public programs will engage audiences through thoughtful discussions, performances, and community building. We hope to partner with organizations near and far, as well as authors and speakers.

Sunday – Friday: The Museum is closed to the public. Self-Guided Visits for large groups and Guided Group Tours are available upon request.

Saturday: 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM

We look forward to seeing our visitors in person on Saturdays and through our various in-person and virtual programs. Should you have any questions about MOCA’s schedule adjustments, feel free to email us at info@mocanyc.org.
