New Britain Museum of American ArtWhere art meets life.

Cheerful, welcoming spaces await you when you walk through the history of American Art!  Adjoining the sweeping Frederick Law Olmsted-designed Walnut Hill Park, the New Britain Museum of American Art is a beautiful facility housing a complete survey of the greatest art produced by our nation and engaging special exhibitions.  All-American favorites like Wyeth, Rockwell, Whistler and Homer adorn the spacious walls, along with mural masterpieces by Thomas Hart Benton and a spectacular, cascading Chihuly chandelier.

Surprises await around every corner.  Micro-sculptures made by Ghetti  invite guests to look closely while the monumental 9/11 memorial by Graydon Parrish invites reflection.  With 28 benches designed by artists, there is even art you can sit on!   Whether your tastes range from spectacular Hudson River School oils all the way to cutting-edge modern art, the New Britain Museum of American Art has something for everyone.

The New Britain Museum of American Art is fully handicapped accessible.
