About the DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum
The award-winning DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum houses the Foundation’s renowned collection of British and American fine and decorative arts dating from 1600 through 1830. Featured in regularly changing exhibitions, these include the world’s largest collection of Southern furniture; nationally important holdings in English silver and pewter; a vast collection of 18th-century clothing and textiles; and one of the largest collections of British ceramics outside England. Masterworks and period pieces acquired for Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area exhibition buildings bolster the museum’s holdings in furniture, metals, ceramics, glass, paintings, prints, maps, tools, weapons, numismatics and textiles.

The DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum, opened in 1985 and features 15 galleries in 25,000 square feet of exhibition space as well as an auditorium and a café.

The Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg also include the Public Hospital, a reconstruction of the first facility in 18th-century North America dedicated solely to the treatment of the mentally ill. Besides serving as an entry to the art museums, the Public Hospital contains several exhibits detailing mental illness treatments from the 18th and 19th centuries.
