Dear Friends of the WAM,


The WAM is excited to announce that we are planning to reopen our doors to the public on Tuesday May 26th. Our state and the Miles City community is in Phase One reopening, so WAM will take a new approach to keep our staff and community members safe during this time.


All WAM Art Education classes will be held outside with limitations on class size. Registration for classes start this week and class descriptions are on our website under the Education tab and will be advertised on our Facebook page as well. Please keep a look out and share with family and friends. Keep in mind that each class will have size limitations and may change due to inclement weather.


WAM has developed a strategic plan for reopening using guidelines from health officials to formulate our plan of action. WAM staff will be sanitizing high touch areas throughout the Museum, throughout the day, practicing social distancing while in common areas.
