New Britain Museum of American Art
New Britain Museum of American Art Review
An important stop for art lovers, this 100-year-old museum's collection of more than 10,000 works from 1740 to the present focuses solely on American art. Among the treasures are paintings by John Singer Sargent, Winslow Homer, and Georgia O'Keeffe, as well as sculpture by Isamu Noguchi. Deserving of special note is the selection of Impressionist artists, including Mary Cassatt, William Merritt Chase, Childe Hassam, and John Henry Twachtman, as well as Thomas Hart Benton's five-panel mural The Arts of Life in America. The museum also has a café, a large shop, and a library of art books.
