Welcome to a museum of exceptional character, individuality and beauty. With a deep passion for and knowledge of American art, a preeminent collection, and a newly expanded space, The Westmoreland is a true one-of-a-kind. Best of all, it’s yours.

The Westmoreland is a regional museum with a national presence. But it’s more than a museum. It’s a destination that presents a unique look at American life. Built to inspire and engage, it’s a place for people from all corners of the world to gather and experience American art.

The Westmoreland’s collection includes works by major artists from four centuries. It also captures the region’s rich agrarian and industrial past by placing local history within the greater context of our nation. We’re home to more than 3,400 objects of fine and decorative American art, including our newest collection of post-1950 artwork. Every work of art has a story to tell.

On the heels of a dramatic renovation, The Westmoreland has become a true 21st century museum. We’ve increased our gallery and education spaces, enhanced our community-oriented programming, and we’ve literally raised the roof to include more traveling exhibitions.

Why? So visitors like you can build a deeper relationship with our diverse collection, and develop a deeper appreciation for American art.
