Permanent closure of the Stewart Museum
The McCord Stewart Museum has announced the permanent closure of the Stewart Museum. This sad decision was made in response to extremely difficult financial circumstances that have rendered the Stewart Museum’s prospects uncertain.
The Stewart Museum’s collection has been integrated with those of the McCord Museum since the merger of the two museums in 2013. The collection will continue to be preserved and disseminated through virtual programming, exhibitions and a new digital platform that will be launched in the fall of 2021.
Thank you for your interest in the Museum and for following its stories and activities with passion. We hope you will maintain your attachment to the Museum’s collection and stay in touch with us through the McCord Museum.
