While You Are Here

When you visit the Arnot Art Museum, you will climb the wide front steps, cross under the four columns, and enter into the 1833 home of the Arnot family of Elmira. You will be greeted at the Guest Services desk where the friendly staff will orient you for your visit. While guided tours must be scheduled ahead of time, you will have the option to hear an introduction in the 1880's Picture Gallery which includes the history of the Arnot family and the Museum.
