The Keller Gallery

The Keller Gallery
Something is always changing in The Keller Gallery

The Keller Gallery is our space for temporary exhibitions that changes 2-3 times a year.  We host traveling exhibitions from The Smithsonian and other museums, and produce exhibitions in-house based on our permanent collection.  

The Keller family continues to support our temporary exhibition program.

The exhibits are primarily focused on the museum’s extensive artifact collection. Sometimes we even focus on local art and history.

The Keller Gallery exhibits are always changing so check back here for the latest schedule of exhibits often.
