I regret that I did not visit the Palmer Museum while a student at PSU. Admission is free, and there are some wonderful exhibits. The space is quiet and inviting. There is a small gift shop as well.
The museum has a good variety of art on display. The staff is friendly and helpful. I was fortunate to see the exhibit "Still Moving: Photographs by Steve McCurry." I would definitely recommend visiting the museum. There is no charge to enter the museum. Donations are accepted.
I have been here before, but this time was a visit to see the Heller prints. The exhibit was well curated. The collection is maturing, and the other exhibits were worthwhile, covering a wide range of styles and periods. Admission is free, and there is an outdoor sculpture garden as well. It is good to know that Penn State is... 更多
I'm not an art expert but I was on the PSU campus and I have time to kill. My teenage daughter and I walked through. It was free! the museum is small to medium sized. They rotate exhibits so it is not always the same. We thoroughly enjoyed this stop. If you go to PSU don't miss this.
As a Penn State Alumni I have been to this museum many times during my visits to State College.

I have seen John the Baptists finger and studies of the architecture of Manhattan. For a University museum... 更多

It's difficult to find parking on campus, especially if you are not familiar with the area. This place is just too difficult to get to if you're unable to walk several blocks.
Located on the Penn State campus, the parking is problematic. We walked from our Hotel (Days Inn on Pugh). Entry is donation only or not. Two floors of art from many locations and periods. The flow could be better as you end up backtracking some, but the art work is fine and the price is right.
The Palmer Museum of Art has an incredible selection of various forms of art from ancient Chinese pottery to modern day paintings. It's located on the Penn State campus and is guarded by two distinct lion's paws. There is no cost to view the art work and the best idea is to try to get make arrangements in advance to... 更多
