The historic town of Oberlin and campus of Oberlin College offer lots of things to see and do. Make a day of it while visiting the museum.

The Art Museum

Spend as much or as little time in the galleries as you like—a stop at the museum is a must for your Oberlin itinerary. First-time visitors to the Allen often say, “I had no idea you have works by Monet and Picasso here!” The museum offers a range of experiences for people of all ages and interests. And, with a lively program of changing exhibitions, there’s every reason to visit again.
