Mission Statement

Fruitlands Museum strives to provide knowledge of our heritage, enhance appreciation for nature, and enrich comprehension of art through visual and physical experience.

Description

Fruitlands holds a wide variety of attractions for seekers of arts and nature. Visitors can engage in a wide selection of activities, from educational programs to brunch in the Alcott Restaurant and Tea Room. Our Art Galleries house over 100 Hudson River School landscape paintings and the second largest collection of vernacular portraits in the country. Fruitlands Museum's first juried outdoor sculpture exhibition, Art in Nature, explores balance, strength, fragility, curiosity, and knowledge through a selection of engaging sculptures integrated into Fruitlands' dynamic landscape.

Fruitlands' Native American collection includes over 1000 ethnographic objects divided between New England, the Plains, Southwest, and Northwest Coast culture areas. Since its inception, Fruitlands collaborates with Native Americans, scholars and conservators to interpret and care for its Native American collection.

Our style of yoga at The Durga Studio is very much inspired by The Transcendental Movement of the 19th century. Using the philosophy behind both yoga and the Transcendental Movement as a springboard for exploration, The Durga Studio welcomes people, of all ages, and levels, to join us here at Fruitlands as we explore our journey of the spirit.
