To protect the health of our staff and visitors, the Metal Museum has decided to cancel all onsite classes and programs through July 2020. At this time, our Education Department is determining best practices in order to better serve you in the future. If you are registered for a class or have any questions, please contact Lori Gipson at lori@metalmuseum.org.
