The newly remodeled and updated Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, is a delightful location for visitors to unwind while looking at over 3,400 objects of fine art from the past and present. The museum offers yoga mats and chairs in every gallery to allow for serene relaxation.

The Westmoreland highlights American art and figurines from the 18th century through contemporary along with everything in between, so you are sure to find yourself gazing at each gallery in awe. Be sure to notice the remarkable 102-piece blown glass Chandelier, as you walk through the main entrance of the museum. Guided tours for groups of six or more are available; for smaller groups or individuals, there are curators and museum workers in each gallery to answer questions and guide you. Afterward, drop by the gift shop, where you’ll find handmade jewelry, books, games, and fine art.
