The arts will have a new home along the river when the Susquehanna Art Museum officially opens to the public on Friday, January 16, 2015 in midtown Harrisburg. Admission is free on opening day.
With a nod to reuse and recycling, the building is a mixture of old and new. The 20,000 square foot space includes the former Keystone Bank Building, where the old bank vault has been repurposed into unique gallery space. The museum also includes other gallery spaces, a café, museum shop, and educational programming rooms. See photos of the Susquehanna Art Museum construction here.
The museum is located at 1401 North Third St., Harrisburg and is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. Sunday and by appointment Monday.
General admission is $8; $5 for teachers, seniors and veterans; and free for children younger than 12. Free parking is available at the rear of the building.
