The museum's four building complex features over 20,000 square feet of gallery and educational workshop space and includes the historic 'Cross Barn' built in 1883, and the impressive Simond's building completed in 1989.

Visitors can experience masterpieces in 12 beautifully designed galleries that feature American, European, African, Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Asian, and Pre-Colombian art.

Education
