Statement of Purpose:

The Joseph and Margaret Muscarelle Museum of Art at the College of William and Mary is dedicated to the enrichment of cultural life on campus, in the community and throughout the Peninsula region. College students, members of the public, interest groups, and preschool through high school students are among the many who visit the Museum and enjoy its programs.

The Museum, built entirely with private funds, was completed in 1983 and expanded in 1987. In 1988 the Muscarelle Museum of Art was accredited by the American Association of Museums indicating that the highest level of professional standards have been achieved in the care of the collections and the development of public programs.

Highlights & Collections:

A diverse permanent collection with works ranging from 10th century ceramics to late 20th century paintings.

The Museum's art collection began in 1732 when the third Earl of Burlington gave The College of William Mary a portrait of the physicist, Robert Boyle. Since then, the collection has grown to over three thousand works of art and stands as a major artistic resource for the College and the region.
