The museum also features outdoor displays of agricultural equipment, and a rotating lineup of temporary displays showcasing Palmer’s art, history, and culture.

Artist of the Week

As part of our mission to promote the arts in the Palmer community, we want to take advantage of the Friday crowds to give local artists a platform to showcase and discuss their work! Each week, a different local artist’s work will be displayed in our hall gallery, and the artist will be available for a short Q&A the first Friday of opening.
