Attraction details
Owner description: The Foosaner Art Museum, located in the Eau Gallie Arts District, was established March 8, 1978 as the Brevard Art Center and Museum, Inc. On July 1, 2011, the Museum merged with the Florida Institute of Technology. A $1 million gift was received from the Foosaner Foundation to benefit the Museum, now officially known as the Foosaner Art Museum. The Museum is a gathering place, a visitor attraction, a landmark, an anchor, a catalyst for change; we exist to educate and to deliver a message that will encourage people to think differently about their relationship to others and the world; a center of creativity, the Museum collects, displays and interprets all aspects of the visual arts, particularly women artists, in ways that relate to the past, to the present, and to the future. The Foosaner Art Museum’s permanent collection is comprised of five categories: Modern and Contemporary Art, The Conill Mendoza Collection of American Industrial Design, Asian Art, Cultural Education Collection and Women Artists.Throughout the year, visitors can experience a changing selection from the Museum’s permanent collection. Lectures, Jazz Fridays and Free Thursdays are just a few events that populate our ongoing calendar. Visit our website, or like us on Facebook to stay informed of our current exhibitions and events.

“Small but cute”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

Traveling exhibits, small but cozy, frequented by locals. Season passes available, but a typical visit will run you about 5-10$. Rarely busy.

“Waste of time”
Reviewed July 27, 2012 via mobile

Had to visit twice as the e habits were being swapped out. When we were able to see it, we felt cheated. I wanted my time back, walked out feeling no more enriched and trying to explain to my daughter that this was an anomaly. Would not go back.

“Waste of time”
Reviewed May 26, 2012

I was so unhappy when I went to visit this Museum. Or should I say minute walk through building with art that no museum would want. :( Melbourne is disappointing, and this was no exception!

“Small but nice Half-Day trip”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

Small but nice. Local. Worth a half-day trip. It's not the large art gallery many are used to, but there are often local displays that are worth the visit.
