The museum gallery is currently closed for visitation, but it's coming back.
Starting in the fall of 2019, the Francis A. Countway Library of Medicine will begin a multi-floor renovation requiring the temporary deinstallation of the Center for the History of Medicine’s Warren Anatomical Museum Gallery on the fifth floor. All of the artwork, artifacts, and specimens in the building have been taken down for their protection during upcoming construction. Plans are now underway to design and imagine the gallery for its re-installation, and while delayed to the evolving pandemic situation, the museum is looking to reopen the gallery to the public in early 2020.
The Warren Anatomical Museum will continue to offer educational sessions to the Harvard community throughout the renovation and host a number of open houses during the fall and spring academic semesters. Please visit our event calendar this September for these limited-attendance programs. Also look for new content about museum holdings on our new Museum landing page.
