A Truly American Art Museum
Cape Ann – which lies just north of Boston and includes the city of Gloucester and towns of Rockport, Manchester and Essex – has been a leading center for artists since the 18th century, a maritime powerhouse and the source of granite for many major building projects up and down the East Coast.
The Cape Ann Museum has a number of collections relating to this rich cultural heritage, including an extensive selection of maritime paintings and landscapes by American artists such as Fitz Henry Lane, Milton Avery and John Sloan.
Visit us today to discover the artistic treasures of Cape Ann.
In addition to its permanent collections, the Museum offers a rotating schedule of special exhibits throughout the year. For information on these exhibits and related lectures, programs, and events, please visit the Special Exhibits page.
Cape Ann Museum hours are:
Tuesdays – Saturdays: 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
