The newly renovated and expanded Addison Gallery of American Art is the art museum of Phillips Academy.

The Addison Gallery offers school group programs for pre-kindergarten through high school in the new Museum Learning Center.

Working directly from superb examples of American art, students and teachers can explore, compare, arrange, discuss, research, study, and write to prompt understanding and criticality around culture, history, and the power of images in our world.
