Temporary Closure: Health & Safety During COVID-19

Thursday, July 2, 2020
All Day

Temporary Closure

The Rothko Chapel and new Suzanne Deal Booth Welcome House are currently closed due to COVID-19. We will open at a limited capacity when it is safe to do so.

As we plan for reopening our public spaces and welcoming you back to our site when it is safe to do so, we recognize that each of us plays a critical role in creating a safe and healthy environment. We have created the following guidelines and practices based on recommendations by the CDC, local, and state governments that will help to ensure the health and safety of visitors and staff. For our full health and safety guidelines, click here.


Keep Connected & Engaged

In conjunction with the Houston Museum District, the Chapel will refrain from hosting in-person public programs, tours, gatherings, and private events until it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we will offer virtual public programs and opportunities for engagement, including the curated playlists of past public programs listed below. Visit our calendar to learn more about upcoming programs and opportunities.

Explore the Chapel Shop Online - The Chapel Shop provides keepsakes and momentos to help the experience of this unique space continue. Explore thoughtfully curated books, gifts, souvenirs, and education tools, all driven by the Chapel's mission to illuminate our shared humanity and inspire action leading to a world where all are treated with dignity and respect. Purchases are available for pickup only. Pickup hours are Monday through Friday, 2-6pm at 1410 Sul Ross. Contactless curbside pickup options available. 

Care in the Time of Coronavirus - playlists curated by the Rothko Chapel on Vimeo and SoundCloud featuring collections of meditations, contemplative practices, music, poetry, and reflections to provide care, compassion and relief during times of uncertainty and change.


We hope you, your family, and loved ones remain safe and healthy, and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.
