Statement of Purpose:

The Castellani Art Museum of Niagara University is dedicated to

exhibiting and interpreting important contemporary art;
encouraging cross-cultural communication and collaboration through a traditional folk arts program and its interface with contemporary art;
promoting the needs and interests of our diverse Western New York constituencies; and
increasing educational value, outreach, and participation for all exhibitions

The Castellani Art Museum houses an exciting collection of 20th century and contemporary artworks as well as folk arts and educational programming.


The Castellani Art Museum, with its gracious marble facade and exciting collection of 20th century and contemporary art, is the only art museum in the Niagara Falls area, just minutes away from the Falls. There is always a spectacular installation in the 4,300 square foot Main Exhibition Hall, while the nine surrounding galleries feature important contemporary paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photographs by artists such as Cindy Sherman, Romare Bearden, Raoul Dufy, Georges Roualt, Louise Nevelson, Matta, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Judy Pfaff, and many, many others.

Call us to find out about the Stations of the Underground Railroad public sculpture program, which highlights Niagara county's as an underground railroad conduit for enslaved African-Americans in the 19th century.

We have activities available for children, a reasonably-priced museum shop, and tours of any kind are available with a few days advance notice.

An interactive computer installation is centrally located for all visitors to access information about our collections and programs.
Admission is free.
