Museums that Showcase Pennsylvania German Arts and Antiques

(My Random Favorites)

The American Folk Art Museum:  In New York City, next-door to MoMA. They're both avant-garde.

Metropolitan Museum of Art: The Met. (Not the one with Beverly Sills.)

Philadelphia Museum of Art:   It's not just Picassos and Rembrandts here. Lots of Dutchified art also.

Lancaster County's Heritage Center:  A cornucopia of Lancaster antiques ...and a stunning collection of Amish quilts.

Landis Valley Museum:   Two eccentric bachelor brothers create a world-class museum in Lancaster County.

Barnes Foundation: Albert Barnes says: Collect Renoirs, Cezannes, and PA Dutch stuff. Then stack them in huge piles.

Mercer Museum:  Another eccentic bachelor creates a world-class collection.  (Do I detect a theme here?)

Winterthur: Henry Francis Du Pont was King-of-the-Collecting-Mountain.  

Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society: This place is excellent. (O. K. I'm biased. I have been a trustee here for 20 years.)

Rothman Gallery at F&M College: Not just for students. For Dutchy cognicenti also.

Mennonite Historians of Eastern Pennsylvania:  A Fraktur collection that will shock and amaze you.

Ephrata Cloister: Very medieval-ish. Very important.
