The Hyde Collection

Housed in an American Renaissance-style mansion, the museum features Louis and Charlotte Hyde’s collection of more than 3,000 objects. See tapestries, paintings, and sculptures from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance, and get up close with art created by Rembrandt, Rubens, Renoir, and Picasso. From egg tempera painting to portrait drawing lessons, the Art Studio activities allow groups to express themselves using the tools, techniques, and vocabulary inspired by the exhibits.
