Allen Memorial Art Museum

This past Friday, while traveling from Chicago to State College, we stopped in Oberlin, Ohio to check out the Allen Memorial Art Museum. These past couple summers I’d been anticipating visiting this museum during to road trips to Philly, but it never seemed to work out until now. Located about 10 minutes down OH-58 off 1-90, the AMAM has a wide collection of works from around the world, all housed in a beautifully constructed Italian Renaissance-style building.

Below are some photos of the galleries. Note that the center quart area was undergoing some renovation.
