As the largest art museum in southwestern Virginia, the Taubman Museum of Art serves as the region’s premier destination for world-class arts and culture. Founded in 1951 as the Roanoke Fine Arts Center, the Museum now resides in a landmark facility designed by renowned architect Randall Stout and named one of the nation’s best designed museums by Architectural Digest. The Museum’s collection focuses on American art and includes more than 2,200 works from artists such as Romare Bearden, Thomas Hart Benton, Thomas Eakins, Audrey Flack, Robert Henri, Judith Leiber, Sally Mann, Norman Rockwell, John Singer Sargent, and Purvis Young; twelve galleries support twelve to fifteen exhibitions per year. With a mission of bringing people and art together for discovery, learning, and enjoyment, the Museum’s exhibitions as well as community engagement and education programs typically reach more than 80,000 guests per year, and were recognized recently by the Institute of Museum and Library Services as a National Medal Finalist. The Taubman Museum of Art is also among only one-third of museums in the nation to offer free general daily admission.
General admission is free.
The Taubman Museum of Art offers free general admission thanks in part to the generous support of AEP Foundation.
