The Fabric Workshop and Museum has reimagined our tours and workshops in response to COVID-19 best practices and with city and state restrictions in mind. We have resumed offering onsite tours and workshops (for groups of ten or less), and will continue to offer a variety of virtual tours and workshops so that the experience of visiting FWM can come to you!

Visitor Policies

We look forward to welcoming you back to FWM and are working to ensure a safe and positive experience for our visitors.

Contactless Ticketing
Advance tickets to FWM are now available. Timed tickets allow for a limited number of guests per hour. This will minimize person-to-person contact and allow us to operate at reduced capacity in accordance with city and state protocols.

  • Reserve your tickets online before your visit. Due to limited capacity, we can only guarantee admission for advance reservations.
  • Admission remains free, with a suggested donation of $5.
  • Tickets will correspond with 90-minute admission windows. Guests may enter the museum at any time during that window and explore the galleries at their own pace.
  • In order to maintain a healthy environment, FWM asks that you exercise good judgement by postponing your visit to the museum if you are sick or are concerned that you are becoming sick. Please call 215.561.8888 or email [email protected] to reschedule tickets if necessary.

Mandatory Masks
In the interest of everyone’s safety, face coverings will be required for all staff and visitors ages 2+ as they enter and navigate the building. Children under the age of 2 must either be carried or placed in a stroller.

Monodirectional Traffic Flow
Our reception area and gallery spaces are designed to support a monodirectional traffic flow through the museum, in order to minimize contact. Visitors will use the back elevator to travel up to our eighth-floor gallery, descending to the second-floor gallery, ground floor, museum shop, and exit by way of the front elevator and/or stairs. Our Visitor Services team will be available to help guide visitors throughout the building.

Social Distancing
Please maintain proper social distancing, keeping at least 6 feet between yourself, FWM staff, and other visitors who are not in your party while enjoying the exhibitions. Visitors are asked to follow spacing markers in the reception area and other selected areas. We have also installed plexiglass barriers in areas where transactions occur.

Practice Hand Cleanliness
Hand sanitizer stations are installed throughout FWM to encourage positive public hygiene. High-traffic areas undergo frequent sanitizing during open hours.

Practice Public Health Etiquette
Because water fountains are unavailable for hygiene reasons, visitors are welcome to bring their own bottled water, but no other food or drink is permitted in the museum. Also, please practice public health etiquette by coughing or sneezing into your elbow rather than your hands.

Travel Light
Visitors will be asked to keep their belongings with them (coats, bags, purses) during their time at FWM. Please refrain from bringing large bags or backpacks into the museum.

We kindly ask that all visitors observe the above measures and precautions during their visit to FWM. Updates will be implemented (i.e. increased gallery capacity, return of group visits, etc.) as local guidelines allow.

Non-flash, personal-use photography is welcome in the galleries (except where noted). Share your images with us on social media @fabricworkshop! For the safety of the art, pens and markers are not permitted within the galleries. Pencils are available at the welcome desk. As a courtesy to other visitors, cell phone conversations should be conducted outside of the galleries.
