    NOTE: Art Museum Touring.com will shortly be deleting a few museums that do not fit our overall mission, or have not kept their pages on our site up to date.
    To keep up with museum and gallery updates as they come in follow Art Museum Touring.com on Twitter: http://twitter.com/artmuseumtourin and http://twitter.com/sherrcarr

    A map has been added to each museum page. The museums that provide a lot of information will now have three pages: their main page, a page for exhibition descriptions and a page for their events.

    Check our:

    • Home page and/or Index page to see which museums recently updated their page and on what date. Look for the new photos tag.
      • Museums and galleries that have joined in the past month are listed at the top of the column on the Home page
    • Blog
    • Events page for openings, receptions, other museum activities
    • Exhibitions page to see a list and thumbnail photos of current shows. Check a particular museum's website (available on its page on our site) for all its activities and exhibitions.

    Support Your Area Museums! They are economic engines for their communities. And take the time to visit the local galleries in your area. A vibrant art scene contributes to a healthy community.
