Rothko Chapel

Chapel Open

welcome back

The Rothko Chapel is now open Wednesday through Sunday, 10am to 6pm.

In order to create a safe and healthy environment for our visitors, staff, and volunteers, admission to the Chapel will be managed by free, timed-tickets. Advance ticket reservations are required for entry. Timed entry sessions allow a 30 minute visit to the Chapel which begins at the session start time listed on your ticket. The first (10:00am) and last (5:15pm) session of each day is 45 minutes in duration, allowing visitors to those sessions extra time inside the Chapel. Each visitor may reserve up to 5 tickets per timed entry session. Tickets only grant entry to the Rothko Chapel and are not valid for the Menil Collection.

Upon arrival, visitors will check in at the Suzanne Deal Booth Welcome House located across the street from the Chapel at 1410 Sul Ross.

Tickets that are not claimed at the Welcome House within 15 minutes of the session start time are subject to cancellation and released for walk up visitors.
