Lancaster
Museum of Art

For almost half a century the Lancaster Museum of Art has sought to provide visitors with the “best available art.” Since its founding in 1965 by a group of artists and community leaders, the Lancaster Museum of Art has been a leading source for culture and education for people living in, as well as visiting, this region.

Initially known as the Goethean Gallery and located on the campus of Franklin and Marshall College, the Museum became the Community Gallery of Lancaster County when it relocated off-campus to a downtown location. In 1979 we moved to our present location in the Grubb Mansion, adjacent to Musser Park, and in 1996 became the Lancaster Museum of Art.
