Muscatine Art Center

Muscatine, IA




Showcasing the 1908 Musser Mansion and the contemporary Stanley Gallery, the Muscatine Art Center offers eastern Iowa both decorative arts associated with the original home, and exciting changing exhibitions. Established as a museum in 1965 by a gift of Laura Musser's heirs, Mary Catherine McWhirter and Mary Musser Gilmore, the mansion features many distinctive architectural details of the Edwardian period. In 1976, C. Maxwell and Elizabeth Stanley donated the Stanley Gallery which provides contemporary space for changing exhibitions and studio art classes.

The grounds of the Muscatine Art Center cover over four acres and include a "Japanese Garden" with pagodas, small pools, waterfalls and native Iowa wildflowers. In addition, an enclosed courtyard has been developed for outdoor sculpture.

The Muscatine Art Center is located at 1314 Mulberry Avenue. Please see the Art Center's website for hours and admission fees.
