Attraction details
Owner description: The Foosaner Art Museum, located in the Eau Gallie Arts District, was established March 8, 1978 as the Brevard Art Center and Museum, Inc. On July 1, 2011, the Museum merged with the Florida Institute of Technology. A $1 million gift was received from the Foosaner Foundation to benefit the Museum, now officially known as the Foosaner Art Museum. The Museum is a gathering place, a visitor attraction, a landmark, an anchor, a catalyst for change; we exist to educate and to deliver a message that will encourage people to think differently about their relationship to others and the world; a center of creativity, the Museum collects, displays and interprets all aspects of the visual arts, particularly women artists, in ways that relate to the past, to the present, and to the future. The Foosaner Art Museum’s permanent collection is comprised of five categories: Modern and Contemporary Art, The Conill Mendoza Collection of American Industrial Design, Asian Art, Cultural Education Collection and Women Artists.Throughout the year, visitors can experience a changing selection from the Museum’s permanent collection. Lectures, Jazz Fridays and Free Thursdays are just a few events that populate our ongoing calendar. Visit our website, or like us on Facebook to stay informed of our current exhibitions and events.

If you enjoy painting and art then the Melbourne art district is a must on your holiday. The Foosner was gorgeous but in the same area are several galleries to visit - best one is 5th Avenue gallery almost opposite. Eat at Chef Mario on the corner. A fantastic day out.

I took my daughter and a couple friends there after a lunch. It was very quiet and relaxing. The art was interesting to see and the museum is tastfully done.

We visited the museum because of a german artist special exhibit. It is free on thursdays. It has a cute gift shop with very nice things.
A walk through the area where the museum is located with old, historical, nice houses makes it a good, relaxing afternoon trip.

This pleasant museum used to be called the Brevard County Art Museum. They always have interesting changing exbibits--the current one takes up the one floor of the museum. Great black and white photographs done in the 60s by French photographer Leon Herschtritt. Lots of easy free street parking in this old, historic area of the city.

Very interesting exhibits. Worth the trip. IF you like art you'll love Foosaner! The place is easy to find and does not take more than a half an hour or so but i highly recommend it.
