The Dahesh Museum of Art Gift Shop is Temporarily Closed for Repairs

The extreme cold weather broke a waterline at the Dahesh Museum of Art Gift Shop, and we must temporarily close for necessary repairs. Please check our Website and Facebook page for our reopening date.


As the Gift Shop repairs damage caused by a frozen waterline, our Sherlock Holmes films each Wednesday will go on temporary hiatus until further notice. We will resume where we left off, so we can continue to watch the progression of Sherlock Holmes from decade to decade.

Watch for our restart of the series when we screen The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes’ Smarter Brother in the weeks ahead.

The Dahesh Museum of Art regularly hosts informative presentations by some of the world’s leading scholars. Click to learn more about our Salon Thursdays events.

Pieces from the Dahesh Museum of Art permanent collection go to other museums and cultural institutions around the country and the world. Click to learn more

This Website extends our mission of education in 19th-century academic art, informing our friends of exhibitions organized by the Museum and other collaborations, and will offer online exhibitions and resources that can expand the discussion about this period of art history.
