Looking forward to 2024

The Palmer Museum of Art at Penn State is temporarily closed to the public as it transitions to the new Palmer Museum at the Arboretum, which is slated to open in spring 2024.



Temporarily closed until the new museum opens at the Arboretum in spring 2024.

NEW Palmer Museum

The Palmer Museum of Art is constructing a new museum within the Arboretum at Penn State to replace the current building on Curtin Road. The innovative new Palmer will be a larger facility that features education spaces, including a teaching gallery, flexible event spaces, and nearly twice the exhibition space of the current museum, allowing for expanded student, faculty, and public access to Penn State’s growing collection of 10,500 works of art.
