The GMOA houses a permanent collection of more than 9,000 works of art, as well as a variety of traveling exhibitions and a new sculpture garden.
Gallery tour groups are welcomed, and educational tour groups on a variety of topics are available upon request. GMOA also offers its ongoing "Tour at Two," with a tour each Wednesday at 2 p.m., as well as Family Days once every month on a designated Saturday morning.
