Winterthur Museum, Garden and Library will close for the winter season at 5 p.m. Jan. 6 and re-open to the public at 10 a.m. on March 1.
During this time, Winterthur will undertake renovations and upgrades in some public areas to make visitor spaces more comfortable. Improvement projects include the refurbishment of the museum tour reception area, the addition of four handicapped/van-accessible parking spaces, and the installation of various fire and security system upgrades, among others.
Winterthur also will use the time to make preparations for the upcoming major exhibition, Common Destinations: Maps in the American Experience, which will be open from April 20 to Jan. 5, 2014. For more information, visit winterthur.org.
