free admission

In 2023, a generous gift from Smith College alumnae Jan Fullgraf Golann '71 and Jane Timken '64 enabled the museum to eliminate all admission fees. Generous support is provided by Art Bridges Foundation’s Access for All program. This funding will be used to provide further access to art through a wide range of initiatives. SCMA will invest in access and audience development with extended hours, innovative programming and student outreach.
