Palmer has a wonderful eclectic collection of art - period; modern; unique. I am admittedly no expert - but it's laid out in separate sections with just enough information about the artist; period; materials etc. It's easy to drive by - but a place on campus you really should visit. Even the most casual admirer of art will find this... 更多
We finally stopped in to the Palmer Museum during THON weekend. Parking is the nearby lot is convenient and allowed on Saturday/Sunday. We had passed by a few times when visiting my daughter and due to time constraints did not get a chance to go in. Admission is free, but please leave a donation in the big glass box at... 更多
Curated w/ love & attention, with the smartest most dedicated group of docents. Always worth an explore or even just a quiet retreat into thermostatically controlled & quiet environment. Most amazing is that it's FREE!! But, try and leave a donation, it's worth your support.
Attached to the older museum, which had limited gallery space, the Palmer, named for its major donors, contains valuable collections of pottery from Asia and the Americas, along with a collection of American art & pieces from other areas of the world. There are also special exhibits from time to time.
A fun little museum in the heart of Penn State Univ. Went for the special exhibition on studio glass art and was not disappointed. The collection included multiple pieces by Harvey Littleton, Dale Chihuly, and Lino Tagliapietra among others. The permeant collection includes a good selection of American art and abstract art.

A small but precious permanent collection and creatively curated special exhibits. Best gift shop in town. I buy all my gifts here for kids and adults -- the toys, art and jewelry are always a win.
Some of the collection is interesting. The labels on the wall are in small print, hard to read and I don't believe there were any information sheets for eachof the rooms. No acoustic-guides or cell phone tours.
