Allen Memorial Art Museum

The Allen Memorial Art Museum (AMAM), founded in 1917, features one of the finest college or university art collections in the United States. Comprising more than 14,000 works of art from virtually every culture and spanning the history of art, the AMAM's collection is a vital cultural and educational resource for the students, faculty, and staff of Oberlin College as well as the surrounding community. The museum has a series of public programs, and its education department provides academic resources for the college community and local schools. Admission is free.

Once in Oberlin, be sure to participate in the Art Rental program. Established in 1940, the program allows you and members of the community to rent two original works of art each semester, usually a etching, photograph, poster, or lithograph. With works by such artists as Toulouse-Lautrec, Picasso, and Red Grooms, the rental collection has something for everyone.
