After 83 years, Higgins Armory Museum officially closed its doors on December 31, 2013. Fortunately, the museum's core collection will live on as it's being integrated into the Worcester Art Museum (WAM) just a few miles away. On Friday, March 28, WAM will open a NEW exhibition, entitled Knights!, combining works from its collection with those from the newly integrated Higgins Collection.
To welcome the Collection, WAM will host a series of events in conjunction with the opening of the new exhibition. Explore Knights! to learn more about the events and the exhibition.

In preparation for the sale of our building, we commissioned a report on the structure and its history, which is now available to prospective buyers. The report was created by architectural historian Sara Wermiel. To read, please click here. For more information about the real estate listing for our building, please visit CBRE New England.
