This museum has been in existence since before Mickey Mouse was making his first tentative steps into popular culture. Founded in 1924, the collection has more than 2,400 objects, with a substantial amount dedicated to contemporary 19th- and 20th-century American art, as well as the art of the Ancient Americas. This latter collection is perhaps the most impressive, with 900 ceremonial artifacts—pottery carved precious stones and textiles—from some 35 ancient cultures, including Mayan and Aztec as well as indigenous North American peoples. The museum hosts several touring exhibitions every year, and the building itself is a grand, Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired rotunda.
