Museum Website

The Museum holds 5,000 objects in a collection that concentrates on American art from 1850  through today.

The architecture of the Museum building spans three centuries. It combines Akron's original 1899 main post office with a soaring 21st-century glass and steel structure. 

Some notable original features of the Italian Renaissance revival-style brick and limestone post office building are the pairs of carved eagle medallions and bronze lanterns that decorate the Market Street façade, and the mosaic depicting a Pony Express rider which is imbedded in the lobby floor.
