This is definitely a hidden cultural gem where you'd least expect to see one. Gallery is small, but free and the exhibits are remarkable. There are some works by Grant Wood for those who like regional art and other midwest artists. The museum has been around for decades in an ornate structure that reflects the gilded age and more prosperous times.

Very interesting collection of mainly local Indiana artists. Really enjoyed, mainly Impressionists. One Renoir painting on loan. Liked the exhibit of living artists and me voting for my favorite piece

American art. Well lit. Good signage. Free. About 2,500 works in the collection.

Relatively small but worth 1-2 hours to see the collection.

Diverse collection with no specialization, tries to be a big city posh gallery but really would like to see more focus in the collection. Parking is difficult - very little street parking. Staff was friendly. Free admission masked required.

A great art museum that you wouldn't expect to find in such a small city. I'm glad I took advantage of it and my friend from out of town enjoyed it too. Especially loved seeing the Warhol.

We are so blessed to have such an amazing art museum in Terre Haute! In this historic building, you will find floors of art and sculptures from many different periods. My favorite artist is Edward Hopper and they have a wonderful piece by him. Don't miss out on this free art museum in downtown Terre Haute. Donations are accepted.

A great little hidden gem of a museum. Not very big, and if you aren't studying the art work, then you'll only need about an hour. Staff linger, but don't be put off by it. Some items including A. Warhol is priceless, so accept it and move on. Plenty to see for a nice artful afternoon! Worth a stop!

We almost missed this little gem of a museum, make sure you don't. They have static art and revolving. We were there when they had some Andy Warhol pieces! I found a "new" artist I loved John Cox! Wow! His paintings look 3D with brilliant colors! Anyways, take a 15-25 minutes to see this art museum...Loved it!
