The Hyde Collection offers a world-class group of works that span almost six thousand years of art history from antiquity to the present.
The Museum's founders, Louis and Charlotte Hyde, acquired the majority of objects during a fifty-year period of avid and highly informed collecting. Many of these works are displayed in Hyde House, the founders’ former home, as well as in the Museum’s modern exhibition galleries.
Permanent highlights of the Hyde Collection include Rembrandt van Rijn's Christ with Arms Folded, and Pablo Picasso's Boy Holding a Blue Vase.
Educational programs and events are offered for children, teens, families, and college students.
