Hours & Location

Beginning Wednesday, September 2, access to the Snite Museum is limited to University of Notre Dame, Saint Mary's College, and Holy Cross College students, faculty, and staff.

Public access to the Museum is not possible at this time. Should that change and opportunities to welcome the public avail themselves, we will communicate them immediately.

The Museum will be closed on Notre Dame football home game Saturdays.

Please note: all visitors to the Museum will be required to wear a mask at all times, practice social distancing, and follow the other ND HERE campaign guidelines:

         a.) Wear a face mask

         c.) Practice physical distancing from others of at least 6 ft
          d.) Stay to the right in hallways and stairwells
