Tyler Museum of Art
For a dose of traditional culture, visit the respectable Tyler Museum of Art (on the east side of the Tyler Junior College campus at 1300 S. Mahon Ave., 903/595-1001, www.tylermuseum.org, 10 a.m.–5 p.m. Tues.–Sat., 1–5 p.m. Sun., suggested donation $3.50 adults, $1.50 seniors and children).
The museum primarily showcases local and regional artists with an emphasis on contemporary works, however, occasional traveling exhibits feature centuries-old European paintings, Japanese artwork, and Native-American pottery and ceramics. It contains three galleries on the main level, a smaller gallery for special exhibits upstairs, and a children’s gallery.
