Once the private home of a lumber heiress, the Musser Museum features many distinctive architectural details of the Edwardian period. The mansion's 11 rooms host important collections of paintings, sculpture, Oriental carpets, and decorative arts. The adjoining Stanley Gallery hosts national, traveling art exhibitions.


The Muscatine Art Center is funded in part by the Iowa Arts Council, a division of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs and the National Endowment for the Arts.
