Featuring the Nation's Largest Selection of A.E. Backus Originals
The A.E. Backus Museum is fresh from a multi-million dollar expansion, which doubled its size, as well as re-imagining of exhibitions and a Museum Store expansion. Housing the nation’s largest public exhibition of artwork by Florida’s preeminent painter, A.E. Backus, the Museum also offers the State’s only permanent multi-media exhibition on the Florida Highwaymen.
Changing exhibitions from artists of national and international acclaim round out the Museum’s Florida-centered mission. The outdoor Mural Plaza opening onto a park bordering the Indian River Lagoon offers a place for fresh air and artistic inspiration. Families and school groups will enjoy the Art & History Scavenger Hunt which is open to the public and free of charge.
