DESCRIPTION

The Masur Museum of Art is the largest visual arts museum in Northeast Louisiana. Housed in the former home of the Masur family, the museum is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Our mission is to support and foster visual arts in our community through quality exhibitions, educational programs, and our permanent collection. Because admission is always free, all members of our community can expand their horizons through the museum's many and diverse offerings.

The Masur Museum of Art presents an ongoing schedule of temporary exhibitions that are supported by a wide variety of educational programs for children and adults. Lectures, films, and artist talks are presented in the Lower River Gallery. The Carriage House is used for art classes, summer art camps, workshops, and demonstrations.

The Masur Museum of Art operates as a partnership between the City of Monroe, which owns and maintains the building, and the Twin City Art Foundation, which supports exhibitions, educational programs, and collections. The museum is a division of the City of Monroe's Department of Community Affairs.
