What is there to do?

Art is SO much more than just paintings - it comes in all forms, from paint, to drawing, sculpture, and textiles to name a few - and it's also an invaluable insight into history and culture from all around the world!

The collection at the Hood Museum of Art features nearly 65,000 works of art and artifacts from a broad range of cultures and historical periods, representing a remarkable cultural and educational experience for all who visit.

There are important holdings of Native American, European, American, African and Melanesian art, including an incredibly significant collection of indigenous Australian contemporary art, AND ninth-century BCE Assyrian stone reliefs!

The Hood Museum of Art also features changing exhibits, so you can always go back and visit something new and intersting. One visit you might explore photographs exploring the the history of dolls, and the next it might be Japanese woodblock prints.

Don't miss joining one of the guided Hood Highlights Tours where you can discover various works in the galleries - no need to reserve, you can just walk up and enjoy learning!

The Hood Museum of Art also host storytime for kids, where little ones can be introduced to the art and collections of the museum with stories and play in the galleries!

It's an art-tastic day out for the family in Hanover, where you don't have to travel around the world to experience some amazing artworks - the Hood Museum of Art has brought the art world to YOU!
