Visitors who enjoy spending travel time at local museums will not be disappointed during their stay in State College .  The Penn State University campus is an excellent location to start with a tour of the area’s museums.  This is particularly true for fans of art museums.  Those travelers who fall in to this category should be sure to check out the Palmer Museum of Art ( http://www.psu.edu/dept/palmermuseum/), located on campus on Curtin Road .  The museum is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from ten in the morning until four thirty in the evening and it is open on Sundays from noon until four.  Best of all, it is free to the public.  There are also free art exhibits located all throughout campus.  Updated information about such exhibits is available online at http://www.events.psu.edu/cgi-bin/cal....  Two galleries on campus also help to meet the interests of travelers; the Robeson Gallery and the HUB Gallery.  For more information about each of these, see http://www.sa.psu.edu/usa/galleries/.

While on campus, visitors should be sure to check out the Arboretum, which is something of a natural, living museum.  It features plant life both native and non-native to the area and offers a peaceful respite from the rest of State College travel life.  More information is available at http://www.arboretum.psu.edu/.

If you are looking for a place to visit that has both an amazing outdoor sculpture garden and indoor art gallery then the C. Barton McCann School of Art is for you. It has a beautiful permanent collection that is open to the public and tours are free. Call 814-667-2538 to schedule a tour. www.mccannart.org
