With a collection of 8,850 objects representing a variety of cultures and spanning centuries of art, The Palmer Museum of Art is the largest museum between Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. Eleven galleries, a print-study room, a 150-seat auditorium and an outdoor sculpture garden round out the facility.

Among the stand-outs of the museum’s American works, for example, are a late eighteenth-century portrait by the New England artist John Brewster, Jr.; a lush, highly detailed nineteenth-century still life by Severin Roesen, a German-born artist based in Williamsport in the 1860s; nineteenth-century landscapes by William Sonntag, John Kensett and William Trost Richards; and a range of twentieth-century paintings and sculptures by artists including Marsden Hartley, Richard Diebenkorn, Red Grooms and Marisol.
