A Contemporary Museum of Fine Craftsmanship

The DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum houses a variety of the “finer things,” including the world’s largest collection of southern furniture and one of the largest collections of British ceramics outside England. Relax in the Portrait Gallery, attend a lecture or musical event in the Hennage Auditorium, or take part in a hands-on activity in the Education Studio.

View more upcoming events in our calendar.

Opened in 1985, the 15 galleries display furniture, metals, ceramics, glass, paintings, prints, firearms, and textiles from the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. Thinking about having a tea party? See how those with wealth and influence dined when you peer into the nationally important holdings of English silver.

If you missed the Public Hospital of 1773 on your way in, be sure to stop on your way out.
