TMA Thursday was inspired by the popularity of our ongoing weekly program It’s Friday! and the desire to attract visitors ages 24–45 to the Museum.

These extended hours are designed to increase accessibility for visitors with different schedules and to enable the Museum to experiment with diverse programming options for those looking to start the weekend a bit earlier. All main Museum and Glass Pavilion galleries will be open Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
