Mystic Museum of Art

Hours: Monday - Sunday 11am-5pm

Founded in 1913, by revered landscape painter Charles H. Davis and other members of the Mystic Art Colony, Mystic Museum of Art serves as the region’s cultural and community center by hosting lectures, studio courses, educational outreach, and exhibitions. The Museum’s permanent collection contains work in all media, including paintings and illustrations by Old Lyme Art Colony founder Henry Ward Ranger, New Yorker artist Garrett Price, noted portraitist Robert Brackman, and Davis himself, including a recent bequest depicting a trademark “Davis sky.” The Museum recently restored and converted a beloved novelty shop to become the 15 Water Street Gallery, which focuses on contemporary art, installation, and pop-up exhibitions. The Museum is located centrally along the river in downtown Mystic. The waterfront grounds are open to the public. Admission to the Museum is free.
