Hunterdon Art Museum

This museum features contemporary art exhibits that focus on modern and conceptual themes, design, and mixed media. The permanent collection emphasizes works on paper from 1930 to the present, including printmaking, illustration, painting, and photography. Docent-led tours are available for current exhibits, and discuss themes in contemporary art and expression. Some tours conclude with a group craft project, where learners can apply what they’ve studied while making their own art. Scouts can work toward their badges while visiting museum exhibits, learning about art, and completing art assignments that challenge them with various media and techniques.
