Fruitlands is home to five collections on 210 acres of meadows and woods. The Museum was founded in 1914 by Clara Endicott Sears and takes its name from an experimental utopian community led by Bronson Alcott and Charles Lane which took place on this site in 1843. When you visit Fruitlands Museum you can go on a hike and commune with nature, learn about the lives of Transcendentalists and Shakers, sit in the Art Museum among Native American or Hudson River School treasures, or be in spired by contemporary exhibits and outdoor sculpture.
