We were on a mission while visiting Demuth. They have an artist who hand paints silk scarves. We were looking for one for our granddaughter's 20th birthday. Our visit ended with a beautiful scarf we know she will cherish. Sadly, my husband was not able to access the museum due to being in a wheel chair. Maybe after he has... More

We thought there'd be more of his paintings on display, but seeing the house where he lived (and his history) was nice.

The Demuth correction is wonderful, rich and worth your time. His history and influence as an artist extremely valuable. The installed visiting exhibitions are well planned and executed. Take the time to visit this simple little jewel in Lancaster downtown.

Learn about one of Lancaster's premier artists. You can see where he lived and worked as well as see local artists' works - past and present in an historic building.

Interestingly sparce. Enjoyed the poetically inspired local artists. Charming, but slightly disappointing with regard to lack of Demuth originals.

Aside from a few reproductions, there is virtually no actual art by Charles Demuth on display here. I love his work and was hoping to see at least a few real pieces. The gallery room had another person's art when I was there in Sept. 2015. The house is of limited interest, though it's curious to be in the artist's... More

I did not know who Demuth was until this visit. A nice place to visit if you are looking to pass a few minutes of time during the day. The young lady at the desk was very nice and helpful.

Located in former home of Lancaster's most famous artist. Plan to visit in Summer when museum hangs more of his pieces. Interesting to see where Demuth and Georgia O'Keefe, a frequent visitor, painted together. Admission by donation. Closed Mondays.

Did not know what to expect when we dropped in for a visit. Student art show was main display and it was good. Upstairs was a small showing of Demuth's work. Front door staff was very welcoming and helpful. Since there was no required admission it is a great value.
