About New Britain Museum of American Art
The Museum has its earliest roots in the New Britain Institute, an organization established in 1853 by city founders to foster learning in a community of new immigrants. Housing a library, a children’s room, and a history room, the Institute began to acquire American artwork as early as 1894. Two years later, industrialist and former mayor of New Britain John Butler Talcott gave the Institute $20,000 in gold bonds for the purchase of “original modern oil paintings,” providing the first purchase funds that would enable some of our earliest acquisitions. In 1937 the Art Museum of the New Britain Institute opened its doors in what is now known as the Landers House. The collection then numbered 26 artworks. In the ensuing years, a series of directors oversaw the dynamic expansion of the collection, addition of galleries, and development of engaging exhibitions and educational programming. In 1994 the NBMAA disaffiliated from the Institute and was officially recognized as a separate entity—the New Britain Museum of American Art, Inc. Today, the NBMAA spans over 57,000 sq. ft. and welcomes 90,000+ visitors a year, from almost every state, and from a variety of countries. Its educational service area spans 80+ cities and towns, and its collection includes masterpieces by artists spanning three centuries. Learn more at nbmaa.org
