Allen Memorial Art Museum

Allen Memorial Art Museum

Founded in 1917, the Allen Memorial Art Museum is one of the finest college or university collections in the United States. Comprising nearly 13,000 works of art from virtually every culture and spanning the history of art, the Allen’s collection is a vital cultural resource for the students, faculty, and staff of Oberlin College as well as the surrounding community. Notable strengths include 17th-century Dutch and Flemish art, 19th and early 20th-century European and contemporary American art, and Asian, European, and American works on paper. The museum’s art rental program provides students with the opportunity to rent a unique artwork (including pieces by Toulouse-Lautrec, Picasso, and Red Grooms) for a semester for only $5. The Allen is free and open to the public daily except Mondays.
