About Us

Showcasing the 1908 Musser Mansion and the contemporary Stanley Gallery, the Muscatine Art Center offers eastern Iowa both decorative arts associated with the original home, and exciting changing exhibitions. We invite you to spend an afternoon with us. Admission is free.

Established as a museum in 1965 by a gift of Laura Musser's heirs, Mary Catherine McWhirter and Mary Musser Gilmore, the mansion features many distinctive architectural details of the Edwardian period.

The grounds of the Muscatine Art Center cover over four acres and include a "Japanese Garden" with pagodas, small pools, waterfalls and native Iowa wildflowers. In addition, an enclosed courtyard has been developed for outdoor sculpture.

In 1976, C. Maxwell and Elizabeth Stanley donated the Stanley Gallery which provides contemporary space for changing exhibitions and studio art classes.
