Visit the Nerman Museum

We invite you to visit the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art (NMOCA) to experience the creations of some of the top internationally acclaimed and upcoming artists of today.


Learn about the museum and the art in-depth by arranging a guided tour (recommended for groups of 5 or more), or use our online resources for a self-guided tour.

The Nerman Museum is an accessible educational environment where students and patrons learn to understand what they see, connect with artists and consider art from various perspectives.
