The Ringling temporarily closes

The Ringling is committed to doing our part to safeguard the health and well-being of our visitors, staff, and volunteers. We share a responsibility with all institutions and members of our community to help mitigate the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and have made the difficult decision that The Ringling will close temporarily effective March 16, 2020 at 5 p.m.

We will monitor the situation and announce when we will reopen at a future date. We have carefully considered this decision, and it is in line with other arts and cultural institutions across the country and our region. The Ringling estate serves as a place of education, inspiration, and respite for our visitors. We are saddened that we will not be able to provide that to our community at this challenging time. Still, we invite you to follow our social media channels, where we will continue to share the beauty of our collections and any updates as they become available. We thank you for your continued support of The Ringling and look forward to welcoming you back as soon as possible.
