Cape Ann - which includes the city of Gloucester as well as the towns of Rockport, Manchester and Essex - has also been a leading center for artists since the 19th century and the source of granite for building projects up and down the East coast.

The Museum maintains and exhibits material relating to these major themes. In addition to its permanent collections, the Museum offers a rotating schedule of special exhibits throughout the year.

The Young at Art program invites children 3 to 5 years of age to visit and explore the Museum. Reservations are required. Programs include an introduction to the Museum, a close-up look at a gallery exhibit and an age-appropriate story.
