Temporary Closure Starting March 13, 2020

In light of the rapidly developing situation involving the COVID-19 coronavirus, the Long Island Museum will be closed to the public beginning on Friday, March 13, 2020.

We will be monitoring the situation closely and we will continue to share updates as information is available.

The health and safety of our visitors and staff remain the Long Island Museum’s absolute priority. Thank you for your understanding.

Culture from the comfort and safety of your home! Take online tours of the LIM’s current exhibitions, Off The Rack: Building and Preserving LIM’s Art Treasures, narrated by Joshua Ruff, LIM’s Deputy Director/ Director of Collections & Interpretation and A Century After: The Work of William M. Davis, narrated by Jonathan Olly, LIM’s Curator.

Additionally you can take the opportunity to view the centerpiece of LIM’s outstanding carriage collection, The Grace Darling, a beautifully decorated omnibus that welcomes visitors as they enter the Carriage Museum. Step inside and behind the railings of the Carriage Museum with Joshua Ruff for a virtual museum tour, Carriages on the Inside.

The LIM cares about our community. We wish you all health and safety and look forward to the day we reopen our doors. Until then enjoy these videos.
