Springfield Art Museum

What might you see at the Springfield Art Museum? With a collection that includes more than 10,000 objects spanning many time periods and cultures, we are constantly changing what is on display. The Springfield Art Museum’s permanent collection began in 1928 with two small seascapes by Philadelphia artist Mary Butler. This began a focus on American art from the 18th century to the present. When you visit, you’ll see special collections that include: American watermedia, Art of the Midwest, Asian porcelains, Printmaking, and more. Experience a variety of eras and cultures from Europe, Asia, and the Americas through: Sculpture, Paintings, Ceramics, Decorative Arts, Pottery, and Textiles. Take your time exploring each area of the museum where selections of our permanent collection, as well as special exhibits are displayed. Load up the kids and participate in the Family Art Lab with hands-on activities for everyone, or have quiet time in our Book Nook. Stay as long as you like. Wander at your own pace. Sit and study your surroundings. We want you to fully enjoy your visit to the Springfield Art Museum, and look forward to your return. See our website for exhibitions, events, and educational programs.
