Edwards Place, under the current directives from state and health officials, plans to open again for tours and retail in our gift shop on June 2, 2020.
We will be requiring facial masks for all visitors, staff, and volunteers. Our public tour schedule has also changed to Tuesday-Saturday at 1 PM only. Tours are limited to 8 guests and we encourage you to schedule private tours outside public tour times by emailing our curator Sarah at collections@springfieldart.org.
